How much should a 11 yr old lift with dumbells. Not the highest they can lift but regularly to gain some muscle weight?

In brief: Repetitions
Try lifting 20 lbs 25 times, then 50, then 100 when you're able over several weeks to months.
Lift weights 3x a week. You'll have lovely muscles in a few months. Do it slowly. It's safer and more effective.
