@Subway11 -I used to use a hand weights set but, I always got really sore in the middle of my back. I was probably using the wrong form, but it sort of turned me off to using a dumbbell set.
I really am thinking of trying resistance bands in order to get a little more definition without the risk of injury. I am going to get a resistance band set that comes with a DVD so that I can learn how to use them.
The nice thing about the resistance bands is that you can travel with them because they don’t weigh that much.
