    So yeah, $100 later and I have dumbells... and no idea how to use them! I thought it would come with instructions or something :S But apparently not... So for a beginner... With no weight lifting experience before... What am I doing haha? I really want good pecs! And good arms! I keep hearing shit about muscle groups of something? Anyone suggest a site with step by step guides for a beginner?

    The workout plans on this site are pretty good.
    Also you can find tons of good stuff on YouTube.

    Super easy pec workout:
    do four sets of pushups -- as many as you can until you have to stop -- every other day. Just keep your back straight so you don't mess up your lower back. You don't need a bench or weights or anything but a floor. icon_smile.gif
    Your chest will grow fast, especially at your age.

    Good luck and kudos for the motivation...

    You should have spent the hundred on a gym membership. Obviously they offer a much wider range of equiptment. However, you can still get some nice work done with dumbells. Check out http://www.bodybuilding.com/exercises/ (link also contains all of the muscle groups) for some awesome exersises. Main thing is to workout for yourself, stay consistant, and have fun with it. Good luck man icon_smile.gif
