Weight Training for Beginners

Want to start lifting weights, but not really sure where to begin. Poor technique and form can lead to injury.

It might be worthwhile if to get some guidance when you first start – have a couple of sessions with a personal trainer.  You may have friends who’ve been working out for a while and know what they are doing – but be careful not to pick up any bad habits.

If you’ve just joined a gym they are usually happy to take you through an orientation, including a quick demo on how to use the machines and free-weights. After -all they don’t want to see any injuries either.

Check out these easy guides and tips to make sure you are using weights correctly.
