Steel Hex

What's the minimum weight I could lift to show results (bulk)?

All I've got's a 10 lb, and I can easily do 100 reps and feel no benefit. I also have a bad elbow, so I can't go and buy a 50 lb or anything like that. What's the lightest weight which would show tangible results on my biceps?

BQ: Any good ab exercises?

haha yeah, 100 reps is a waste of time. In fact it might be ANTI muscle because you are burning so many calories flexing your arm that many times and your muscle isn't really getting a workout until you get somewhere near 90. So you might be getting even smaller arms doing that!

You should go to Walmart and actually lift a 20 lb steel, hex dumbbell with one arm and see how many you can do. If you can do 20 reps, then try a 25 lb or 30 lb with your other arm. The goal is to "max out" at no more than 8.

If you still can do around 15-18, take a 1 minute rest while looking at the very low prices they have on dumbbells as well as the very interesting people that shop there, and then try a bit more weight 'til you find your 6-8 rep dumbbells. BUY A PAIR OF THOSE. I haven't seen a store that sells them for less.

Sooner or later, you'll be able to lift those dumbbells 10-12 times for 3 sets, and that's when you buy slightly bigger ones. In fact, that's how to gain 10 lbs of muscle in 30 days. PROGRESSION, MY FRIEND! : ) : )
