BranJones saidIm trying to get back into shape, but in the past for me its always been running. Im going to start weights now but I just have no idea where to start and its just overwhelming. Im at home for the summer and all we have here are just regular dumbbells and a bench.
RJ has a ton of info on how to use equipment properly. Here's what I found here just searching 'dumbbell':
There are other exercises you can do without equipment or with inexpensive equipment also. All your floor exercises (pushups, situps, stretching, etc).
Use the info here to get you started...work slow, learn and move to another exercise.
