    I lift weights at home started off with 5 pounders and graduated up to 10 pounders. I know they are not huge weights but they have made a difference for me.

    I've got some 3lb and 5lb weights but I never use them! I keep meaning to and then I forget......

    What exercises do you do with them?

    I do all sorts of exercises, bicep curls, tricep curls, above my head, across my body, criss cross, windmills, circles, anything I can think of actually. They really do tone you up. Try it you will like it I am certain. Best of luck reaching your goal.

    I use my 6.6lb weights mostly. i dont know fancy names but i lift them both up above my head and i try to keep them behind my shoulder line. I then hold them infront and then out to the sides. Then I do them bent backwards so its hitting the triceps. then i do them just bent at the elbow low down.

    then lol, i use them while lying on the floor and hold them back behind me, then i hold them out to the side.

    then i get my 15lb one and do that above my head, then i can only manage 10 each arm bends, then i finish with the floor one again as i swear that helps make your ribs stick out!

    I'm sure they have technical names but i dont know them!

    i've also got hand weights that i use for aerobic type stuff, jogging on the spot, that sort of thing.

    I do free weights at home with a barbell (adjustable weights, so I can use it for pretty much everything).
