They can point you in the right direction, give you pointers, and definitely motivate you to your best. So when in doubt, give your instructor a shout. It's always nice to just give yourself goals to reach; however, be careful of what those goals are. Lifting weights, depending on who you are in age and in stature, can vary between person to person. And such is true for the goals you set. So before trying to take on the more difficult weights, start out with what you can do and build up from there. Before you know it, you'll be reaching your original goals in no time. Before you go off lifting weights of any sort, be sure to know your body in advance. Even though you may feel confident that you are ready to tackle the weighted world, you must first understand where you stand. In knowing how well you fare, you can modify your training to one that most suites you and therefore will benefit you in the long run. Know what you are getting yourself into. Don't end up mistaking weight training for something like a competition as in powerlifting, which are two different things. In powerlifting you are competing against others, while in weight training you are versing yourself. So don't go trying to out do another at the gym; the only person you should be worried about beating is yourself. Above all is enjoy exercising and be safe! Always try to better yourself as you train, but at the same time, be sure that you keep the top priority in mind: your well-being! Whenever you feel fatigued or are in some sort of pain, take a well-deserved rest, and make sure to not overdue it. In being safe, you'll achieve the best workout, fufill your goals, and have a blast! With those steps in mind, you'll be surely doing well in the weighted world. Best of luck! :) Bibliography: http://familydoctor.org/online/famdocen/home/healthy/physical/sports/198.html http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/strength-training/HQ01010 http://www.teenagerstoday.com/resources/articles/safetraining.htm Picture courtesy of
