I would suggest you go to a sports equipment store and try to do some reps with different weights to get a feel for what seems right to you. I started out with a pair of 3s and a pair of 5s (I'm female, btw), but I almost never use the 3-lb weights. I am by no means super strong, but the 3lb weights are *so* light that they're rarely useful. I use them sometimes for more toning-focused exercises, but I almost always turn to the 5s and soon might want something a bit bigger. I also have a 7-lb kettlebell that I almost always pass over in favor of my 15-lb kettlebell. Hope this helps!
This happens to me sometimes, too. If you don't want to do the same workout two days in a row, you can always click on "select another workout" (upper right) and choose something else.
This is a great question and I definitely agree with a lot of the suggestions so far, including asking your neighbors about a good time to workout, especially if they've ever complained. I make sure to do any of my jumping moves/burpees/etc on a rug to cut down on the stomping. Also check your lease; it's possible you're already required to have a certain percentage of your apartment covered with rugs or other floor coverings anyway!
I've also had this Follower problem for several months now (and have brought it up a couple of times), but it's still not working. I never got points/award for my first follower.... Still needs to be fixed!!
I have the follower award problem, too. (Hey, sarkrauss!) ;)

I would also like advice on this. Good question :)

Great question! I'd also like protein powder suggestions, so hopefully someone will have a good response.
Will it show up after being cleared as not having profanity or do I need to try to re-post?
I tried to post a response to this yesterday, but it got flagged as profanity! (There was absolutely no profanity in my post, I promise!) Is there any way to get that back??

I agree. I always have to remind myself to remember the final calorie count as the workout is ending. It would be great if it showed up at the end (ie stayed visible when the survey pops up), b/c right now if the video ends and you weren't paying attention as the trainer was winding things down, you're SOL.
