dumbbell weight for p90x
dumbbell weight for p90x
11/16/12 2:54 AM
Hello I've just bought P90x and was wondering what weight of dumbbell is recommended for doing the exercises.

If I bought two 15kg dumbbells would that be to light.

Thanks for any help

Well, it is going to vary person to person; but I highly recommend a series of dumbbells. I'm male and I have 15 pounds (6.8 kg) up to 50 pounds (22.7 kg). If you are especially strong you may need more. This can get cost prohibitive which is why the bands can be a great low cost alternative.

You will be working very nearly every major muscle group using the dumbbells at some point which is why you need such a variety in weight.

I agree with the above- you want a few sets of dumbells. is it 15 lbs or 15kg? You will likely want a little lighter weight if 15 kg for some of the exercises. I have the bow flex ones.

Cheers,
