If you’re starting 100% from scratch, I highly recommend a book with a good number of exercises, plus routines that build up from scratch.

The Strength Training Bible for Women is a personal favorite, but the workouts do get stale after awhile. But by that point, you should have a good enough idea of how to build your own workouts that you can go from there.

Also, I highly recommend getting a digital lifting tracker. My personal favorite is called Strong and I’m only sure that it’s on Android, because I don’t have iOS lol. But any of them that have the ability to enter custom workouts, rest timers, and stat recording will do the job.

Time of day is specific to the person. I work out at night because I don’t have time in the morning.

When starting, I recommend getting a book that has a lot of exercises and routines in it. The Strength Training Bible for Women is a personal favorite because it starts you totally from scratch.

Also, remember that you will be extremely sore your first time. Your body will eventually get better at recovery.

The book I recommend to everyone is The Strength Training Bible for Women or its male counterpart. It’s the most comprehensive book for beginners I’ve seen yet. The workouts are really good, and they do get you conditioned nicely.

You should be 100% focused on form when you’re lifting. If you start swinging the weight or using momentum, you’ve lost form and need to drop back on the amount of weight you use.

At first, you should barely be able to finish 3 sets of 15 reps. Basically, do a movement once, that’s a repetition or a rep. Do that 15 times. Do that 15 reps 3 times with a one minute break in between. Stick to 3 workouts a week with a light stroll on your rest days.

That should be enough to get you started.

I use a book called The Strength Training Bible for Women (and it’s male equivalent) in class. You can finish some of the workouts in 30 minutes.

As you have all probably gotten tired of me saying, I power lift. It’s done wonders for my back too.

My favorite starting book is The Strength Training Bible for Women.

Basically it gets you started with Olympic lifts and general power lifting. It gives you an idea of how to build a routine, and how to use all the equipment at the gym. I got it for Christmas two years ago and I love it.

Also, I fell in love with an essie/edutainment anime called "How Heavy Are the Dumbbells You Lift?" It is utterly adorable, and remarkably inspirational (even if they do think 33% body fat is chubby).
