Weight Training for Beginners

Anyone know of any good sites that have info for weight training for ABSOLUTE beginners? I do work with a trainer but his stuff is so complex I tend to forget it when I work on my own...Id love something that tells me what exercies to do, how many reps, etc.

Thanks!

Any reputable gym is going to have people on staff to help you learn how to use the equipment. The tough part is just asking for help! You can also check to see if they have any "Women on Weights" classes, or something that is specifically formulated to help you learn how to lift.

If you are determined to do it on your own, the challenge is figuring out how to position the machines to fit your body. See if you can find someone of similar height to help you out, or watch to see how they set them up. Next, find a weight that is comfortable, but still a bit challenge by the time you get the the last couple repetitions. Most people start with 2 or 3 sets of 12 repetitions on each exercise. Once you get up to speed with that level of lifting, you can do other things like 25 reps low weight, 12 reps high weight or super slow lifting (where each rep takes 10 seconds to complete).

Not the OP but...
Wow, that link is WONDERFUL!! I've googled my poor little fingers off trying to find this type of info (specifically looking for barbell and cable), and the moving pictures are ideal. Thank you!

If you work with a trainer and he shows you what to do, next time, take a pad of paper and write down each exercise, what weight you use, and how many reps. Or ask him to write it down for you while you're doing the exercises. Then you won't forget!
