    Where to start? Newbie hoping for advice.

    Hello.

    I'm Cheryl I'm new to the site and to lifting.

    I haven't a clue where to start. I've read a little bit and know I want/need to be lifting heavy etc.

    At the moment I don't have acess to much equipment - just a set of adjustable dumbells but my brother has a ton of bars and weights I could have on long term loan.

    So really I just need to know where to start.

    I don't have masses of time to work out but I could do say 4 days a week.

    Could anyone please advise me on where to look for a training programme? I'm overweight but that is in hand - I've lost over 18lbs and still going but I'd like to work on shaping my body as I go.

    Any advice would be gratefully received.

    Thanks

    Read the stickies here and in the nutrition section. All of your questions will likely be answered. Good job on the 18 lbs so far and good luck!

    Thank you.

    I've been reading them think it will take a while to find what I'm looking for though. So far everything I've found calls for more equipment than I currently have.

    But I am easily confused lol.

    Will just keep looking I guess.

    Oh its ok I've found something now. (Sorry frazzled brain today toddler at home driving me nuts).

    The stickies I'd looked at had me going round in circles chasing links but I have found the beginners one now. If I start that off with dumbbells (which I have) then I'll need to go visit my brother in a week or so and 'borrow' a barbell and some heavier weights....then find somewhere safe to store them away from my 2 year old...

    All sorted now thank you. Sorry for being dim lol

    Sounds good! Don't forget to keep track of your diet and weights so you can gauge progress. Writing things down makes a big difference.

    Thank you I will do.

    I track on a different site but it shows typical womens workouts with barbie weights and after doing a little reading into it here and elsewhere I know they won't do anything for me which is why I came for a nosey around here.

    A friend had suggested a workout for me but he has written it himself and I don't know how qualified he is to be advising me on what to do - seems there are a lot of things in it and maybe its a bit much - or so it seems after looking at this one.
