For those who workout regularly, how often do you increase your weights? Or better said, after how much time you feel like you need heavier ones?
I have been working out on a regular basis for about 2 months and the heaviest weights I had were 4kg (8,8 lbs). And they seem so heavy for me, when I first bought them last year (yeah, I worked out inconsistently, or mostly focusing on hiit/ cardio and never managed to put in more strenght workouts).
Right now I am on week 2 of FB Burn and I already starting to find my 4kg weights, not so heavy anymore. I still get burned with them, but slower, aka I need more reps to start feeling the burn.
Today I went to buy 5kg ones (11 lbs), so I can push myself even more. I finally understood that lifting heavy is helping me get lean, not bulky, so I am looking forward to buy a heavier set, maybe next month?
So, how about you? How often you change them and also, how much do you lift now? When I see Kelli lifting 30/40lbs ones I realise how far behind I am :)). Probably this is one of the reasons I decided to push myself more and start increasing the weight.
