I'm debating on buying some dumbbells for my arms in a week or 2 when I go to the mall. **I have limited space at my place, so I plan to do pilates for the lower body & abs for the time being.**
I have yet to find a good resistance band workout that really goes after the arms (and dreaded flabby triceps), so I'm deciding on buying some dumbbells instead.
I know to do one set of reps is about 12-15 times per arm. Do I start out with 5 lb dumbbells or 8 lbs?
**If anyone could also suggest a good resistance band dvd for the arms, that'd be great as well!
