Does anyone have any references to start getting into weight lifting? Anonymous 12726

This thread is really embarrassing to make but I’ve never really had any gym experience before besides the basic machines and would really love if someone could link a reference of some sort on how to properly use the more complex ones. I don’t really know any good exercise routines or how to use half the machines there so I’ve always felt really awkward and discouraged from going consistently. It could be anything from a YouTube video to just a thread or article, just any help would be very appreciated

You don't need machines, you need free weights. Machines are memes for beginners and they teach you how to lift wrong because they're doing half the work for you. Use ExRx for exercises and build a routine that fits your needs. You can pair bis with chest, tris with back and shoulders with legs. You don't even have to go to the gym, just get a few dumbbells and start working out at home. I'm >>12717 btw.

I second what the other anon said. Grab some dumbbells and check out this link for some exercise ideas https://www.coachmag.co.uk/fitness/workouts/dumbbell-workouts and there's tons of helpful explanations on youtube if you search a specific exercise name so you can see the proper form in motion. I would recommend adjustable dumbbells or a rack if you plan to use them long term but those can be expensive, so as a beginner woman you can probably just start with a set of 5lbs and 10lbs. Also when you first go to the gym there is nothing wrong with using the machines to just get comfortable, but you will probably see the best results with free weights. Consistency (working out at least 3x week for months) and diet (getting enough protein) are also very important for weightlifting. Don't get too caught up in what routine and just start– anything is better than nothing

OT but damn looking buff as fuck, even before the cycle
