Female weight lifting routine

Hi! I am new here to muscle talk, my boyfriend talks about this site all the time so I decided to give it a shot. I am 22 years old and live in Alabama. I recently became interested in a day to day routine to help accomplish physical fitness and overall well being. I already have a membership to a local gym in our area, but am not sure where to start with free weights. I need a routine to follow... what to do each day, how to do it, when to do it... and so on. I am 5'3 and weigh 152lbs. I am aware that spot reduction is not possible, so I need an all around workout schedule. If anyone has any suggestions, please feel free to msg me! I am very friendly and would appreciate any advice you could provide! Thanks!

    HI Candice, and welcome to MT.

    If you have a look at some example training plans here this will give you a basis to start with.  Are you including cardio into your workouts also?

    If you are new to weights start with a full body routine, three times a week.  Once you are comfortable with this you can progress onto a split body routine.  If you need more help with the exercises ask away, also if you post in the female section you will get good advice there too.

    Hi, I'm new to this too, I only started 15 weeks ago now with my 16yr old son. There is no need to have special male/ female routines so we just started together on a 3 day weights routine which just alternated between upper body and lower body routines plus 3 cardio sessions per week. We had a book to follow with a simple routine and lots of advice and pictures of how to do things. We asked lots of questions and gained more knowledge and now after more reading and joining this great forum we do a 4 day split which is shoulders and triceps, back, chest and biceps and legs which means we can concentrate a bit more on a particular routine. We have both improved a lot and we are both still able to enjoy training with each other. Although I have to say my age means seems to mean I get a lot more stiffness than my son!!
