    Do you do the exercises in straight sets, supersets or as a circuit?
    Well on my Upper Workout yesterday, I managed to use the Dumbbells for 10KG. Except for Shoulder Press (I had to deload the weight on a second set.) Hammer Curls, I found these were too hard for 10KG. So I dropped it down.

    Today's legs workout I used the 10KG Dumbbells all the way through. I still found Split Squat the most challenging on this one. (Btw it is Day 4). Deadlifts weren't too bad. I think I should really be lifting heavier for these.

    The only reason I was increasing sets by 1 or a couple of reps per week to make it so I didn't stall too quickly. I have 5 weeks left on this Dumbbell workout.

    I do the exercises in straight sets on these workouts.

    (Currently paranoid if my form is correct) Sorry, I think I suffer from Paranoia sometimes.
