Re: Question about weight lifting

your too small, start eating more for the most part, then throw in heavy weights with low reps.

Re: Question about weight lifting

Didn't you say you're going to a trainer? That's generally what they do.
If I'm mistaken or if you're looking to just start a program on your own, try the Body For Life program. It's a very good beginners program to get you started with a good basic conditioning and will help you adopt some good exercise/diet habits. One thing to note is that the guy that wrote the book also owns EAS, so he plugs his products for the diet, but theyare absolutely not necessary to make it work. Check it out.

There really is no exer phys theory to support this. Muscle fibers either fire or they don't. Some muscles with either a predominance of fast or slow twitch fibers respond better to certain weight/rep schemes but, thats about it. Volume (with adequate nutrition) is the key differentiator to gaining lean mass.
