^ Its fairly easy, find a basic workout routine, start light but with alittle struggle on last rep, so u can learn the correct form, and u should be good.. But u actually said something smart, not to just go to the gym and start lifting.. Here is one of the best basic routines to get started with, it will build up some strength and get you used to the compound exercises that are the most important , after a few weeks then move on to different parts of the body for certain days.. Here it is
Mon, wed, friday(3 sets, 10-12 reps):
- Bench Press
- Bent over rows
- deadlifts(Form is very crucial)
- Shoulder press(barbell or dumbbell)
- tricep pushdown
- bicep curl(with bar or dumbbell)
- Calf raises
tuesday, thursday, saturday(rest)
Sunday: i recommend a cardio day but u can rest
if any of you guys are costco members, i just came across clif builder's bars, $13 for a 12 pack, which is a steal. they taste amazing and they're all natural (though a bit high in sugar), i highly recommend picking them up.
These are usually 10 for $10 at Ralphs but havent been lately... But they have to much sugar in em, so i always grab pure protein bar instead.. But cant lie the builders are taste awesome!
