bxp011 saidGo to the gym, and start copying what other guys are doing lifting a lot less than them...
Then, go online, figure out what you were doing, and figure out how to do it properly.
Just ask they guy what he's hes doing and how to do it properly.
I think i learn most by watching other people, and then putting a little research into it.
When i want to change things up, or add things to my work out I also just look it up online, and then start with a low weight so i don't hurt myself. Back on the weights when you know what your doing.
That's not good advice. Copying what bigger guys are doing is bad for two reasons:
1) are the big guys injecting themselves with roids? They can do whatever the fuck they want in the gym or out of the gym and gain muscle and lose fat.
2) Natural bigger guys lifting regimen is different from a beginner's regimen. Beginners need to focus on form and motor learning. Veteran bigger guys can do strength and power lifting, which looks completely the opposite of what beginners need to be doing.
Agree with hiring a personal trainer who either has tons of education and/or experience to design a beginner's program. Don't go to someone who just started and is certified with no education. They may know how to workout themselves, but it is a different ballgame when designing for other people. FYI getting the title "certified personal trainer" can take less than 2 weeks of education even for the best certifications (immediately if you print one out from online for a few bucks). Unfortunately the industry wants you to have these "certs" to get hired, in spite of having degrees.
