Dumbells

Wtf is up with 35 pound dumbbells being so much heavier than 30 pound dumbbells? They are like twice as heavy.

      I'm new I just don't understand. All the other dumbbells are progressive but the jump from 30 to 35 is so big, like nearly twice as much weight. I don't think I can make it.

        look at the size. The circumference increased yet the width decreased

          What do you mean anon? The 35s are twice as big as the 30s. It's fricking bullshit. I mean once I get to 35 it's easy to move to 40 they are like the same size but this jump is too much. They need 32.5s

            total volume = circumference * width
            30lb has a lot of width (thick) but the circumference (circle) is smaller
            It only looks much bigger because the circumference increased a lot, in reality it is not.

              Look I'm not doing fricking math to fricking workout. It's obvious the 35 is so much bigger than the 30 are you blind?

                It's bigger because it's heavier.

                Its less thick! Only circle bigger, so dumbbell look many much bigger. But actually only a bit

                I always knew gym people were dumb. You guys cant even see the size difference. I don't think this is for me.

        just start lifting them with shitty form and push for another rep every time you do it. As long as your form isn't so broken down that you might genuinely injure yourself, this is actually the best way to progress. Some days also just choose the lighter weight but go slower and rep more and just burn the ever living frick out of your muscles. Having heavy days and light days is good but the intensity has to be the same.

        you're probably hyper fixating on form which I made the mistake of for years and didn't get stronger very fast that way. You HAVE to push weight and let form break down and just try to get better at all the parts of moving that weight until you can move it over 10 reps with decent form.

        The real weird thing is once you get into serious weights on compound movements is it doesn't really get easier per se, each heavier weight bracket is still harder you just become... capable, I guess? Think it has to do with the fact your nervous system doesn't get stronger like your muscles do so each heavier weight bracket is gonna frick you up more (mostly) regardless of your strength

          also, if you aren't half repping and even repping to the point youre literally moving it inches or less until you have no choice to drop it, you are not working at full intensity. You're going to mid-discomfort, not failure. Last few reps of your set full rom should be absolutely fricking impossible. I often do another 6-10 baby ass half reps after my form breaks down, at which point im left having to stop or being forced to drop it on my head/toe/chest

            obviously if you have a friend working with you or aren't afraid to ask people around for a spot, itd be better to get assistance on those half reps so that you can actually do assisted full rom rather than half repping. Self-spotting on single arm movements or drop-setting is another viable option

    The 35s are a big jump man. I remember when I got stuck at 30s. You can do it bro.

    the weight is spread further from the bar. the weight is on average further from your hands. longer lever, more torque.

      Wtf is torque? I thought that's what trucks did.

      that applies to the centre of mass which is the same
      IST is truly moronic

        Wait I'm confused? What is this shit about torque and center of mass and having to do math. I just want to be strong but these bullshit 35 pound dumbbells are twice as big as the 30s

          Dude is talking about leverage but misappropriating it.
          Torque is the vector product of the force vector and the distance/radius vector relative to the pivot point. But that radius is from the centre of mass of the object, which is the same on any dumbbell regardless of their size provided you grip it correctly.
          Basically the further something is away from its axis of rotation, the heavier it will feel. You know all of this intuitively, try doing a lateral raise with straight arms vs with your elbow bent to 90 degrees.

          All of this is irrelevant, what you're experiencing is a sharp jump of being closer to your hypothetical 1RM with those 10lbs in total.
          Going from 75% to 80% with e.g the 25lbs dumbbells to 30lbs dumbbells is going to feel very different than going to 85% with the 35lbs ones.

            So I go in and do 1 set of bicep curls every day?

        Not him but moment of inertia is related to the radius of a circumference. Basically it takes more effort to rotate a wheel with a bigger radius but of the same mass. That is because the mass isnt distributed and the outer parts are traveling more distance for a given degree rotation

    You guys know this OP is either a troll or genuinely so moronic he doesn't understand elementary school math, stop replying to him

      I always thought the weightlifting community was toxic but now here you are calling a beginner moronic because I don't understand "torquing the circumference of the center of mass" or whatever weightlifter lingo

          Look I don't know why you guys keep talking about physics and shit. My head hurts. I'm going to bed. I'll take pictures at the gym tomorrow of the 35s and 40s so I can show you what I mean. The 35s are so.much bigger than the 30s.

    The struggle is real with curls. I can do 4x20 at the current weight but when I went to the next weight up I could only do 1 set of 6. Just do 1 set at the beginning with the higher weight and do as many reps as possible. Do the rest of the sets at the lower weight. Over time you'll be able to add more reps to the heavy weight set
