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.
