Definetely, I think its one of our greatest weapons in the war on SA.I try to work out but unfortunately there is something screwed up with my knee (torn meniscus or something). Running and some weight lifting exercises can aggrevate the issue.
I should get my bike tuned up and use that for cardio.
the weightroom can be pretty intimidating at first but once you realize that no one really cares if you cant lift as much as they can then you can do your own thing (i struggled with this aspect at first). A personal trainer is great but im a poor college student so i just looked up a bunch of routines and exercises online and winged it when i got there. Ive been weightlifting for about a year and once you know what your doing, by picking it up from other people and such, its increases your confidence so much!Whenever I get on the treadmill, I walk away feeling so much better. I want to try the weight lifting machines, but I'm uncertain what I should try first (being that I've never lifted in my life.)
I might get a personal trainer. Do you have any tips for the weight lifting beginner?
