Comment posted on If I want to lose weight, should I do the ‘Classic’ or ‘Lean’ P90X routines? by Coach Nancy
Before we talk equipment, we need to discuss how you get great results. You need to lift heavy. 3lb dumbbells are NOT going to grow any muscle. Even 8lb dumbbells, which are OK to start if you are weak, are not going to get you the results you want. Let me put this in perspective. I use 15lb dumbbells for my small muscles like triceps and some shoulder moves but for most exercises I’m using 20, 25, 30 and 35lb dumbbells. So you need a lot more weight.
Good news is that when you get a quality resistance band set, you can get the equivalent of light and heavy weights. The set I like is very reasonably priced AND includes a door ‘holder’ piece so you can do pull downs in lieu of pull ups. Find this great travel resistance band set at BB.com (click on the link).
