    When it all boils down to it, work outs are going to be very personalized, based on what you are trying to accomplish and what feels right for you. Only you will understand your limitations. Just by inquiring you are taking a step in the right direction, and when it comes right down to it, eating better and being more active than you are currently will only improve your life. You want to stay balanced in everything, a balanced diet, a balanced work out routine, balancing work, play, family, friends, school. It's all a Yin and Yang, start working out to better yourself not for aesthetic purposes, and you will get farther that way.

    It snows here...
    bodybuilding.com has a huge site dedicated to working out. I suggest reading most of the whole site. ( I did ).

    My advice: Get a few sessions with a personal trainer... maybe 3 to get you started... they can give you the low down on eating, cardio, weight training... its well worth the $100 or so, plus they'll help you customize your work out...PLUS they'll show you proper form so you don't hurt yourself. Everytime i see someone do a latpull down with the bar behind their head I wince....:rolleyes:

    There are also good books... Men's Health publishes a few of them.

    http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/exercises.htm

    this link will help you TREMENDOUSLY

    points out the different muscle groups on a person and lists exercises for those muscles. most have pictures on how to complete them, a good amount have video.

    do research on this forum, on BB.com, hell... and t-nation and elite

    this is like asking, "can you explain math to me real quick?" there is no quick answer... and AIM chat isnt going to help. dig around, read peoples info, learn exercises.

    Buy the bible.

    Arnold Schwarzeggers Modern Encyclopedia of bodybuilding.

    It is essential.
