It means 2*40 lbs DB. 1 DB is 40 lbs, so total 80 lbs.

My quads are strong and you are correct in pointing that out, but I am purposely slow on increasing weights in DL and Squats. Goblet squats, last time when I hit 50 lbs single DB, put strain on my upper back. This time i m planning to build up and then increase weight. Secondly, the knees as you know. Well, the knees are much better now.

Regarding DLs, I have very weak form and I m confused as to how to fix it.

Thanks 5KG.
