Weight lifting question.

I hate waiting for results and I often wish that I was born buff and a walking weapon of mass destruction. So I started thinking of the fastest ways to get in shape. I thought of something, but I don't see many people doing this for some reason.
Say you have two 5 pound, two 10, two 15, two 20, etc, dumbells. Why don't people ever take the heaviest dumbells they could possibly lift (even once)and decrease the number by 5 every time they're no longer able to lift the ones in their hands until there're no more left? Wouldn't that show results a lot more quicker? (Of course it'd hurt like a *****, but that's a price to pay lol)

Sorry if I didn't make myself clear. I didn't know how to put what I thought into words. :-\

I have no idea what the hell you just said, but I heard if you
can do more than 10 reps then you are not lifting enough to get results.

And I would get into creatine too, it helps as long as you work out good while you are using it. And you need to stay hydrated.

At my gym they give me really weak weights (somewhere around 5lbs per dumbell), at first i thought it was ridiculous but I basically just do heaps and heaps of reps until i CANNOT do anymore. This increases your strength without decreasing your SPEED which is crucial for a fighter.. If your a fighter that is. It has worked well for me.
