What weight do you use?
I always do cardio and circuit training and I have found that for my circuit training the 8lb dumbbells are too light. I am speaking specifically for lunges, with my squats, dumbbell burpees......etc




ETA- also if anyone wants to be workout buddies I would love that, I have a great group on Facebook and would like one here as well....

It just depends on what exercise. Anywhere from 8-25 for now

Definitely do it gradually. The trainer I'm working with wants me to be able to do 3 sets of 12. If you get through one set and it didn't get harder as you went, go up a weight.
