Find a weight you can just about shift, it shouldn't take long. Then, use a weight 75-80% of that and use good form to raise and lower it taking between 10 and 12 seconds or so per rep. When you just cannot move it any more, try for just a couple of seconds and then stop. Keep breathing, I sort of hyperventilate to make sure that I do not hold my breath and strain. When I get to 7 to 9 reps, I go to the next weight up. I get jelly legs and spaghetti arms after a session. I've been doing this since the beginning of July at one session a week and have always done more reps or had to add more weight.

Why use a sledge hammer to crack a nut when a steam roller is even more effective, and, is fun to drive.
