I heavily prefer using dumbell's for most all movements where they are applicalble. However, using these, I run into problems when doing programs such as Chad Waterbury's that call for a 2.5% increase in weight each week. In most all cases the smallest you can move up on dumbell movements is 5lbs a piece, which is a total of 10. I was trying to figure some way around this the other day when I saw my sister doing some excercises with ankle/wrist weights. Woudl it be possible to say, if I wanted to move up 4lbs, on my dumbell bench, to strap 2lb wrist weights on. I know this may look awkward as I have never seen it done, but wouldn't the two lbs. on each wrist still be adding to the wrist. Any insight on this is appreciated.
