Default Question about New Rules of Weight Lifting for Women

Strength training is something that I really want to incorporate in my weight loss because I know how important it is to weight train now for my health. I have heard about the New Rules of Weight Lifting for Women and wasn't sure if I should buy the book or if I am able to get all the information I need at my fingertips when it comes to starting a good lifting program. For anyone who has read the book, or hasn't, what do you suggest?

I cannot go and buy the book right now, as money will not allow it until after the new year, which is why I am looking for an alternative option in the meantime. I do not think the strength training in 30 Day Shred is adequate enough either.

Do you have a library card? I got my book from the public library.....If you are going to follow that program specifically I think you need to have the book. There are free alternatives available online though.

Another new edition is coming out on 27Dec that is supposed to have new exercises, videos (online version), etc.
I'm waiting for that one!

I didn't even think about the library! I am able to use the library on post so I will definitely have to go up there tomorrow if they are open and see if they have it! Also, I will be keeping my eyes open for the new edition. I have heard a lot of good about the program.

I never did NROL, but I did find a lot of free resources on the web. I always recommend this site for exercises: http://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/top-posts/

There are videos, different routines, etc. I found out the proper way to do deadlifts and squats from this site

Check the book out at the library to see if you like the New Rules program. Also, I'm a big fan of this series. I did the women's program and made great progress. Now, I'm doing the abs program and loving it! Hope this helps.

Thank you for all of the advice ladies! If the library is open today I am going to definitely check out the book. If not (not sure what their holiday hours are) then I will give it a go as soon as they are back up and running!

Thank you for the link Sonta to check out the other resources too!
