ooh cool idea...my gym has 2.5lb plate mates by the fixed-weight barbells, but I never have looked to see if there are anything similar around the dumbbells.

I saw I could also buy a pair of 1.25 pounders myself on amazon, but it was almost 30 bucks...so buying them for myself is on hold.

thanks!

Have you tried 21 lbs?

Do you own plate mates. They are magnetic weights you can stick on the side of your weights to increase them in smaller increments.

ohh this one is making me mad!

It's stage 3 and stage 5 (maybe later too, no idea).

Right now I can do it with 20lb dumbbells, but it is way easy (remember in stage 5 you only do 4 reps at a time!). But I am really struggling to get the 25lb weights into position. I can move them fine once the first messy rep is done, but I just cannot get them into position in any natural way. As a result I've been sticking with 20lb. Boo.

Any ideas???
