Weightlifting is one of the best ways you can get in shape, but it is very important to make sure not to hurt yourself in the process. So I recommend starting very simple with something like the Ò7 Minute Workout.Ó ItÕs a few exercises using your body weight and if you can accomplish that, you can move on to something more rigorous. The next thing IÕd recommend is that you go to a gym, talk to a trainer, and learn a few different exercises with dumbbells and barbells. A typical weightlifting regimen consists of 6-8 exercises with 12-15 reps each at a weight you can comfortably lift. Over time, youÕll find yourself getting stronger and youÕll be able to lift more weight.
