I still remember the trauma like it was yesterday...

The first time around I did the shred I used 5lb weights my first day because silly me thought "Oh, well that's what I've been using to do a few arm exercises with, they should be fine." WRONG I was so damn miserable and I couldn't even get through the whole thing with them. And the soreness, OH the soreness!

I'm using 2lb weights now. I have some 3lb I may switch to at some point, right now they're doorstops upstairs.

Byron,GA> Charleston, SC> Jacksonville, FL> Guilford, CT> Rohnert Park, CA! A southern drawl in sunny Cali! .
The amount of time from slipping on the peel and landing on the pavement is exactly one bananosecond.
I do have a secret yen for pink in unexpected places. ~ninja dog
I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
