First time Weight Lifter

Besides reading the FAQ, read “Dawg School: Beginners Blast Off Program”. Also, your post did not contain any of the following: Height/Weight; Any type of previous or current athletic experience; Goals (lose weight, gain LBM?); diet, what’s it like now? These are bits of info that would be necessary before anyone puts together a workout plan for a individual.

SO...read the FAQ. It will provide you info on quite a few different programs available in T-Mag as well as nutrition (any article by John Berardi). And read the other article I mentioned above.
