Then increase your weight to 5 or more pounds and perform the exercise with the goal number of repetitions. You can choose heavier weights for larger muscle groups like back, chest and legs, but for the smaller muscle groups you will need smaller weights. It would take a while to decide the right amount of weights for a particular exercise.
