    I can only do about 10-15 with 7kg bicep curls, should I be worried? Beginner here

    Not even 3 sets. Usually get super tired after doing 2 sets. And my body is also telling me I overtrain.

    Am I really in this bad shape? Anyone got any help understanding only thing from internet I found was talk about big bodybuilders not beginner stuff who joke about 7kg being small weights and this video of this skinny slut doing 50 like it's nothing with 5kg:

    Nothing wrong with it if you feel it's working. You aren't over trained either.

    My wife uses 8 kg dumbbells and has been lifting for years lol. Although she does not want to develop big biceps, 7 kg are OK for a female beginner.
    Also, I was convinced that the word slut was censored on the forum, now I wonder why do miscers use the word sloot?
    I'm quite shocked.

    Well it depends on your weight, and how long you’ve been lifting.... also height and well gender

    Currently I do hammer curls with 13kgs 3 sets of 15 reps each arm at the end of bench day, preacher curls I do 8 kgs 4 sets of 10. I am 5’3 ~100-105lbs

    If 7 kg is heavy for you at that moment, then that's your weight.
    In time you will go to 12 kg. And maybe higher.
    Don't worry, a male colleague of mine, does curls with those weights too. Light days. But not going much heavier either.

    And if someone laughs at you because of those weights.
    Tells alot about him .
    Who is he, or she, to judge you.

    You might be able to do things that are way more important than lifting a dumbbell/heavy weight.
    Spreading warmth...kindness for example...

    Not all people are good at that...

    If you are a beginner, don't worry so much about it. I'm sure the 'skinny slut' (way to put down another woman!) has been training for a long while if she's doing sets with 50kg weights.

    11 minute 13 seconds.
    Tom Platz talks about Arnold using light weights for biceps and himself going even lighter .
    That should be an eye opener.

    Agreed! But learn to lift those lower weights effectively before you move up in weight. Squeeze!
    I am one of the 3%.
    I am one of the 1 in 8.
