I just bought a 5 pound pair of dumbells (I'm just starting to train, mind you :wink: ) and I've been punching with them.
What do you all typically do with them? Anything funky?

Hey there. Nothing funky, just fundamentals like dumbell chest press, shoulder-press and dumbell rows. I used to hate all three, especially shoulder press. But once I saw and felt the results (increased muscle mass, more defined upper body) I stuck to them. Though the chest press I've replaced with bench, because my ego likes that better ('cos I can press more). But do try the aforementioned dumbell exercizes, they're good for strength, stability and gaining muscle mass. Though you might want to invest in heavier weights if you're truly to benefit from these exersizes :-)
