Can wearing ankle/wrist 1lb weights all day make me get used to more weight and make me faster/stronger or will it have consequences?
Is it dangerous to lift heavier weights while pregnant if you are used to exercising with heavier weights (ie curling 40 lbs. Dead lifts with 60 lb)?
For Strength: Hard to tell if you're upset with the effort involved (weighted lunges) or the instructor's in-your-face attitude.

What to do if i need some exercises to do pregnancy and post natally - putting on too much weight?
How many reps and sets should I do per muscle when lifting dumbbells at home? I don't want endurance, I want to build muscle up as much as I can.
6-10: The idea of reps is to work the specific muscle group to exhaustion and then rest it until your strength has returned. If you have a lot of endurance go as long as you can without causing pain, it will take a bit of trial and error. I suggested 6-10 reps per set to avoid pain and muscle injury. The number of sets is the number it takes to avoid painful muscle injury, try it out ! ...Read more
