Taking a clue from IndyGirl, I started with soup cans. In June this year, they became too light and I was doing 20 easy reps. I went to get some REAL WEIGHTS. Two pounds seemed awfully LIGHT. Threes were more challanging. Fours were HARD.
So I compromised and got ONE 3 pound, thinking if it became too easy too fast, I would not have wasted too much $$$ (still unemployed - 2 years, 5 months, and counting)
It does take longer to do each arm separately, but it does the job.
Now (end of September), am up to 16 reps. Just last night, I was wonderfuling whether to add an extra set to go ahead and get a heavier one.
THANK YOU for your advice.
WE CAN DO THIS !
