    Question: Can you lift as much as Cathe?

    Just wondering if you match Cathe's weight in her videos? I saw her doing 35lb dumbbell chest presses, and I'm like struggling with 20lb dumbbells..but then she will do squats with 25's and I can match it or even go heavier. My upper body is so much weaker than my lower body.
