    Dan John seems to think that you can get by with one DB.

    I do a lot of dumbell work and a lot of one handed work. So imo one dumbell is fine. You can a lotta shit with them babys.

    One is better than nothing and will open up alot of variety to your strength and conditioning. If it's one or nothing then i would say get the one

    What exactly are you trying to accomplish?

    If you just want to gain some strength and keep in good shape, you don't even need weights. Push ups, pull ups, sit ups, dips, lunges, squats, and jogging (run some stairs too) will make you strong/keep you in good shape. The best thing about all that is it's free. (also have a good diet).

    I love lifting weights, but it's true. Bodyweight exercises are great for the average person to keep in shape.

    What does being "in shape" have to do with strength and power?

    Lose fat
    then bulk up
    Then improve my cardio to the best I can and get as strong as I can without changing my apperance from the bulk.

    I weigh around 165lbs say about 25% bf then lose the fat to about 15% Id say that would take me to around 140. then bulk to around 182.So then Id want to stay around 182 but get better cardio and strength.

    And befor any one says why 182lbs/13 stone I dont know why it just seems like a good number to get to I mite stop befor or I mite keep on going.

    Oh and dont no one start saying go to a bbb forum :mad:

    Cutting to bulk is stupid. Read the faq and try again.

    You don't want to bulk up, you just want to get toned, right?
