    20lb dumbbells will not make a heavy lifting program I'm afraid, even at your weight of 135. You're better off focusing on some bodyweight work (in which you can develop great strength) or working out a free heavy option like a sandbag or something similar.

    Hory Clap, yeah 20 lbs ain't going to get the job done. Like Coach said, just stick with body weights then. 20lbs is a warm up weight.

    Second the sandbag idea, much better use of your money. I was using buckets and bottle filled with cement for a while there, serious ghetto lifting.

    Not for strength. While I do like the prison workout idea for muscular endurance, it's definitely not for strength.

    SS is a good place to...well...start. Personally I'm a bigger proponent of StrongLifts and Brooks Kubik's Dinosaur Training though.
