I just finished my workout and during the workout I wasn’t happy, I workout at home because I have no access to a gym.
I’ve got 2x5kg plates 4x 2.5kg plates 6x1.25kg plates.
The workout I was doing tonight was,
Reps x sets
Dumbbell Curls 8x3
Lateral raise 5x5
Tricep Curls 8x3
Now the problem I had was this is the first time I’ve ever used deadlifts in a program - I’m sure my form is ok on them that wasn’t my problem I loaded up both my 5kg plates all four of my 2.5’s and four of my 1.25’s and this wasn’t making me even feel like I needed to rest between sets…
So my first question is - if I don’t have enough weight to build muscle with is there any point me doing deadlifts at the moment and no I can’t buy more weights yet my family is fairly poor and I can’t get to a gym.
Second thing was I have added tricep curls and lateral raises to my workout because I’ve always avoided them and they’re my worst lifts I can barely do any weight at all on either.
The problem I got was I was using pretty much all the weight I could manage to lift with correct form and on the lateral raises I didn’t feel like anything was happening and on the tricep curls it just started to feel like it was going to pull a muscle.
So should I be bothering with those exercises?
