    Hi Mathiese!
    Thanks so much for the advice with the weight lifting. That makes me feel so much better. It is so odd that some days I can lift more that others. I didn't know that would happen. Glead to hear it is okay. I definitely feel challenged and do reach failure, so I won't worry about it so much then.

    I was jumping 5lbs because of the way the Powerblocks are set up. They go up in 2.5lb increments on some wegihts and then at some point they go up 5lbs - I have the Sport 9.0 version. I need to get some of the tiny magnetic weights that I can use to add smaller increments during the 5lb increases. That's why I dropped back down to 20lbs. If I had those I could have tried 23, 22 or something like that.

    Thanks again. I am continuing to plug away. I use free weights and do bodyweight exercises and will be using bands during vacation. I hope it all triggers the various muscle fibers..

    Hi!
    I am gaining some muscle - slowly - lol.
    What do you do if one week you can curl 25lbs. and the next week...you can't anymore? I went down to 20lbs. and am not sure why. I take breaks and rest days and sleep well and all that...

    Freaked me out. If my muscles find the 20lbs. hard and I get to failure that way - does it even matter much? Will my muscles still grow?

    I wonder if that one day I did 25lb. there was some fluke?

    Hey! :)
    I've been working out on the resistence machines at the gym, plus free weights. I need to tone and firm reeeallly bad. LOL. My question is: Do I up my weights or do I increase the reps I do? Also I go to the gym 7 days a week if I can. I've heard you're supposed to take at least one day off for your body to rest. But I've been doing so good....I really don't want to. Your opinion? Thanks Mathiese!
