Did it make sense that he advised me to pick a weight level such that I would do 15 reps each time?
Don't forget all your ligaments, tendons and muscles have to get acclimatized to working out. I think a lot of people try to lift way too heavy weights way too quickly. I've had friends over the years hurt themselves (especially the shoulder) trying to lift way more then they can handle.
