    Look into body weight exercises like dips, push ups, pull ups and explosive movements. 10 lbs can get you muscle but body weight is more effective if all you have is 10 lbs.

    Well, any resistance is better than not doing anything at all, but actually #10's, will most likely not do what some sets of BW chins would.
    Heavier resistance (70%-80% of ones 1RM for multi sets reps) is usually needed to elicit the bigger changes in muscles.

    Your goal should not be to get "toned"--whatever that means.
    Focus on movements that recruit your large muscle groups--not your "biceps and forearms".
    The other posters have excellent advice: stick to big movements using bodyweight: dips, chins, pullups, pushups

    Better off putting that 10lb weight on you back and doing pushups
