Hi Chris. I had a look on Ebay but couldnt find any, then forgot about it. Day one is meant to be Pulldowns, but i will have to substitute pull ups for them. Pull ups/chins twice per week will do me the world of good anyway! Colin

Hi Steve, that seems like a massive jump between DB weights.It would be enough of a jump in lbs.

Indeed. I've done it before but would prefer smaller jumps

Hi Steve, no chance of the gym getting some in between weight DBs? While you may be able to handle the jump how do the lesser mortals go on. Most gyms go up in 2.5 kg jumps as far as i know.
