    As above it's trainf AND nutrition... have a look here:

    http://www.muscletalk.co.uk/article-beginners-first-stop.aspx

    I would recommend you do two full body sessions using 4 compound movements and possibly a couple of isolation exercises for parts you want to work on (e.g. lat raises shoulders).

    Use two different rep ranges say 3 sets of 8 one day and 3 sets of 12 the next. Also use different movements for example

    Day one: 3x8
    Deadlifts
    Overhead press
    Pull ups of chins (if you're OK to do these)
    Lunges
    Isolation: Lat raises

    Day two: 3 x12
    Squats
    Bench press
    Barbell row
    high rows
    Isolation: Biceps curls

    Get a good grounding and then really push it once you have got used to the training.
