In 2007, I joined an aerobics class, and the instructor asked us to bring some dumbbells. When I bought these, the staff at the store recommended I'd buy these instead because the 1lb. ones might be very light for me. After 5 sessions, I stopped attending the aerobics because my walk buddy can't accompany me anymore and I didn't want to go to class alone.
My mom borrowed these dumbbells after, and now that I am trying to lose weight again, mom brought home the dumbbells for me to use. These may just be 2lbs. each, but I am happy to use it because I can do lots of sets before I get tired. I guess next year, I could use a much heavier pair.
