For the first round of S90 I started with 5 and 10 lb. dumbbells. Now I use 15 lb. weights for all but the prone press. For those I drop to 10 lb. This is my second time through S90. I plan on buying a pair of 20 lb. dumbbells before this round is finished.
I have 5 and 8 lb weights. I have 10 lb weights and have been trying to graduate to using them more consistently. however, i think that's how I might have hurt my shoulder. . So, I'm sticking with the 8 lb max for now for shoulders, 10 for biceps and triceps (except the overhead triceps extension--I tried one with the 10 lbs, heard a crunch in my neck and stopped--thankfully no pain)
I have a question for my fellow S90 dayer's...how heavy are the dumbells you are using for the S90 workouts? I use mostly 8,10 and 12 lb weights though I do have to still use my 6 lb weights for things like lunges and tricep triples. I would love to know what weights my teammates are using!
