Note: Make sure you doctor clears you for exercise before attempting any form of new physical activity.

There are a number of useful articles and videos to help you figure out how to start a resistance training (weight training) program. I like this bodybuilding guide Best Beginner Weight-Training Guide With Easy-To-Follow Workout! for men here, although most of us look nothing like the guy demonstrating the activities.

For women, Nia Shanks, Lift Like A Girl blog has a great post, 11 Beginner Strength Training Tips for Women on getting started with weights for women.

I like this workout video overall for a basic beginners weight training workout: 15 Minute Beginner Weight Training – Easy Exercises – HASfit Beginners Workout Routine – Strength. Check it out here on You Tube. HASfit also has an Interactive Trainer App for your Android or iPhone: To download the app for Android, click here. For  iPhone, click here.

I also like Scooby 1961’s 20 min Full Body Workout for Beginners on You Tube here.
