When performing these moves it is essential to maintain proper form and always make sure that the knee never goes over the toe in any of the positions; this will cause unnecessary strain for that joint.Make sure you check with your doctor before trying these exercises. The leg muscles are very strong and you can handle heavier dumbbells when working them. However these moves also require balance so beginners should stick to 5 lbs. initially. Intermediate exercisers can try 8-12 lbs. depending on how strong they feel toward the last rep of the exercise and advanced can try 15 lbs. and on. Quality over quantity is always the goal when performing strength exercises so make sure to concentrate on balance and good form when performing these exercises!
