comment Is just a pair of dumbbells enough?
Thanks for the correction, what. You make a point. By the 40-minute jog, I actually meant exactly what you said.
comment Is just a pair of dumbbells enough?
Thank you, Dave. I bought two sets of dumbbell handles and attachable plates of the following weights: (1) 8 plates of 1 kg (2.2 lbs each); (2) 4 plates of 2 kgs (4.4 lbs) each; and (3) 4 plates of 3 kgs (6.6 lbs) each. So, I can do as little as 2 X 2 kgs at a time and go up to as much as 2 * 9 kgs at the most. I usually do frontals and laterals with about 9 kg weights on each hand. I increase the weights for chest press and shoulder press, though.
comment General malaise after workout for the whole day or sometimes 2 days. Is it normal?
Thank you, Chad. I asked because I am in discomfort and am waiting to get over this phase. I hope it will go and I want to know if there comes a time when you feel just alright after working out and don't feel this way, or does this sort of a thing remain your entire life, i.e. after every workout for the rest of your life?
comment I feel sleepy while doing weight training
Thanks, Michael. I also observe that if I eat a good meal about an hour before my workout, I feel more sleepy. :-) I keep yawning throughout the workout.
