Default Weight Lifting

I want to start lifting weights tomorrow. It's been a while (a loonnngg time) since I've done any real strength training so I'm a little confused about where to start. I did have a short session about the machines at the Y, although that was several weeks ago.

I'm just wondering if there is a website or book that would be helpful to someone who is trying to do some strength training for the first time.

Thanks!

Hi Sheila,

I have a video from Prevention Magazine callled "Fat to Firm" which has a twenty minute strength training program for beginners. I really like it because they show the correct for each exercise, and also show you what NOT to do. Your library may have it, or "Weight Lifting for dummies." I bought that video at Kmart for only seven dollars.

Hope that helps.

(who has yet to do more with strength training than watching the video...sigh)

Thanks for all the great suggestions.

My daughter and I started this morning. It was kind of funny, too, because as we were leaving, I ran into my best friend from high school that I hadn't seen in almost 30 years. I really hadn't wanted to run into people I knew until I lost more weight (a lot more weight), but it's kind of inevitable when you move back to the same house you grew up in.
