    After splurging so much for the Easter holidays I decided I needed to go back to working out and eating more healthy to get some fat loss. My newbie question is how light should I start out at lifting. I know I’ll be real sore, but I just don’t want to pull anything. I had someone say go all the way and get the soreness out of the way, but others say to start kinda light but enough weight to actually do something, then once that soreness is over you can add on more weight. :dunno:

    I am new to this so suggestions are very welcome.

    I'd read the sticky on fat loss...start to eat right obviously...and yes work your way into working out. You'll see all different levels of experience here and obviously the real thing you should concentrate on is not how much weight you can lift but rather how to lift correctly

    focus on form and learning it right, but don't be afraid to push yourself a little while in the gym

    :werd: Exercises like squats that put major emphasis on form should be done really lightly until you have the form, but exercises like pulldowns and even bench are not as important to start light.
