This is the beginning of the basic strength phase. Remember the weight is a tool - not the objective. Stay focused on your form and work through the 10 reps. A good rule of thumb for finding the right weight on any of our exercises is as follows:
Pick a weight you know you can do for the full number of reps (10 in this case).
Once you finish the set, if you feel like you could have done 2 more - then up the weight by 10 pounds per side for legs and 5 pounds per side for upper body.
The goal is to reach failure by the third set and push through it into the 4th.
Make sure to take the full 1:30 rest in between sets. This is critical for the strength work.
On the Front Rack Walking Lunges: make sure both dumbbells are on your shoulders - focus on your form: the rear knee should touch the ground on each rep and the front knee should go out in a pretty straight line. Make sure you don't rotate that knee out of line in your direction of movement.
On the skull crushers: make sure your upper arm stays perpendicular to the ground. We don't want your chest or shoulders to move the weight. This is strictly a workout for your triceps.
