Starting weight training
if you are a complete newbie then i suggest low weights at first, to get your muscles in shape, something like a wake up call. no need to go for 10 lbs if you can barely complete your sets, go lower until your muscles have "woken" up as i like to call it, to avoid a potential injury or unnecessary strain.

if your husband has weight training experience just tell him that it doesnt feel right with 10 lbs yet. You can also tell him to give you an easier program for starters, people with experience often think that all people are on par.

i recently started weight training as well, at home with 10 lbs in and i can challenge myself with them, even though i am not a complete newbie. plus my wake up period consisted of a lot of days of push ups, i didnt jump right in to get dumbbells.

seriously though, your husband probably has more experience than me, so it would be better to talk to him so he can tailor a program more suitable for you.

i wish you all the luck with and endorse your decision to start weight training, its such a great exercise to keep anyone in shape. its not all about bodybuilding, weight training can be used just for toning, and boosting metabolism.

you can do HIIT burpees or climbers. i hate those 2 because of how brutal they can get. do 30 seconds, 10 seconds break, 30 seconds, 30 seconds break. 5-9 rounds depending on your fitness level. if thats too hard, 30/15,30/60 is a lot easier.
