Hi friends.
I have bought 4kg dumbbell (8.8lb) but my mother told me it's too heavy and I should replace it with 2kg .. Because 4kg may cause me backache.. Is it right or not .? What is the best dumbbell wight for me ? I'm girl . 15 years with 99kg

your mum is wrong. Unless you have a medical condition, and can comfortably lift a weight for up to 10-15 reps you are fine. Make sure your form is correct when lifting weights and listen to your body. A 2kg dumbbell is useless unless you wanna use it to prop your door open.

Hahaha that comparison lol but what exactly do you want to do with your dumbbells as in which exercises? And as far to my knowledge it's not advisable to weight train for under 16 year olds as you're growing up and stuff but do your own research and no 4 kg dumbbell won't be the reason for backache.

Lighter Dumbbells are used usually for more reps and tones your body, whereas heavier Dumbbells are for building muscle and you usually do less reps, therefore it's up to your personal goal.

Lift heavy! Right technique is important. Know how to perform the exercise and you will not injure yourself.
