Your body also requires routine maintenance. You can buy a new
car, but you only get one body. So how much is your health

should always consult a physician before beginning any
exercise or diet program. If you haven't trained for a while,
start out slow with LIGHT weights. Use a
weight or resistance that allows you to do 15-20 reps. Do
this for at least two months to give your muscles,
joints, and ligaments time to prepare for the real work.
Besides, for the first 6-8 weeks you're just preparing
your body for the real workout. You'll get about
the same results during this time no matter what you do
(within reason), so don't risk getting hurt.
Always follow proper form for any exercise. Don't sling
the weights. Often you'll see people in the gym
using body English to sling the weights instead of
muscle. Besides the fact that this does little to
work the desired muscles and thus will not give you good
results, it greatly increases your risk of injury.
And workout with a partner. It's safer and you're
more likely to stick with it.
