There will be a BIG different between hanging at 2.5lbs, which is more like stretching, and hanging with 15lbs, which can be VERY strenuous.
Hanging even 2.5lbs before one is conditioned both mentally and physically is still a lot of weight to hang. Especially for people new to hanging, like myself, 2.5lbs isn't all that light.

Advanced PE should never be taken only after 3 months of conditioning either. Advanced PE exercises should not be done by anyone until at least 6 months of prior PE experience. 3 months only leaves you open to intermediate exercises.
