Weight Lifting Routine for Beginners
A weight lifting routine for beginners can significantly benefit your health in numerous ways. Such routines are also excellent for fat loss (by creating a metabolic furnace) if you have unwanted body fat.
Thinking about training is one thing, but getting started is another. If you are an adult and have never done any resistance training, it would be natural for you to be apprehensive or even somewhat intimidated.
You may be afraid of looking foolish, or being injured, or winding up with overdeveloped muscles. That won't happen. Take a deep breath. Simply begin.
One small step at a time is all it takes to begin any journey. Absorbing the information about resistance training at this site will lead you toward a rewarding experience.
In fact, if you'll just keep taking one small step at a time a transformation will occur.
Instead of being worried about a weight lifting routine, you'll begin to worry about missing a session!
Of course, it's 100% up to you: any application of the ideas from any website are your discretion and risk.
Job 1 is not going backwards! Let's check:

(You'll find the links to those pages awaiting you near the bottom of this page.
When you are ready, note each weight lifting routine on this page.
Use one workout for seven weeks and then take a week off from weight/strength training. Then use a different one for another seven weeks and take a week off.
Repeat this process for one year, and then move onto the weight lifting routine for intermediates (whose link awaits you further down this page). You may use them in any sequence. Please try all six workouts.
If you lack access to the equipment necessary for a certain exercise in your weight lifting program, substitute a similar exercise from the Weight Lifting Exercises page (whose link also awaits you further down this page).
Always do a 5-minute general warm-up immediately before each training session in your weight lifting program.
Always do a specific warm-up for the first exercise listed in each workout and additionally whenever there's a change in the target muscle group.
If you don't have time to warm-up properly, you don't have time to train. (The link to our page on how to warm-up awaits you near the bottom of this page.)
Perform the reps slowly enough so that the TUL for a set is at least 30 seconds. Unless otherwise noted, rest one minute between sets.
We hope that you benefit from each weight lifting routine!
