Hey there. I'm Tafiq Akhir, America's Healthy Lifestyle Coach, and I'm going to show you how to choose the proper dumbbell weights for an older man. When choosing proper weights, you want to make sure that you're choosing a lighter weights first and work your way up. I recommend starting with eight pound weights. This will ensure that you're doing proper form and that you're going to prevent yourself from injuring yourself. Now, I'm going to show you two exercises that will help you to gauge which weights are right for you. First exercise is going to be bicep curls. You want to squeeze your elbows into your rib cage, squeeze up at the top and release down at the bottom. Make sure you exhale and that you're feeling this in your biceps and that only your arms are moving. If you feel the need to jerk your body in order to help you get the weights up, most likely the weight is too heavy. The next exercise is alternating lateral raises. Now, lift one arm to the sides, squeezing through the deltoid and release down. Exhale other weight to the side and release down. Now, if you feel the need again to use your body by jerking up in this fashion, that means that the weight is too heavy. You want nice fluid steady movements to ensure that you're not injuring yourself and that you're getting the best out of each of your exercises.
