Default Few beginner questions

1. Do you have the rest for a minute in between reps?

2. I follow a weight lifting plan for beginners from bodybuilding.com but feel like im not doing enough per day. Im sore but its prob cause im big and just starting out.

3. Each day i finish in like 35 minutes. Is that normal?

4. Anybody have a website they go to with beginner workouts?

Thanks lovelys.

What kind of work out are you doing?

Do you have to rest between reps? Generally yes a short rest is customary. Depending on how hard the exercise is I rest anywhere between 10-30 seconds. If the exercise is easy I don't rest at all just so that I can keep my calorie burn high and the momentum going. I find that bodybuilders rest a lot but spend hours at the gym. I'm a Mom, I need to be done on the quick lol.

35 minutes of exercise is vague. It's what happens during that 35min that counts. Are you working hard? Are you sweating? Are you accomplishing what you set out to do? 35 of what?

The most important thing about working with weights is proper form.
