    I like the Simple Beginner program that "all pro" wrote. [URL]http://www.jefit.com/routines/workout-routine-database.php?id=2909[/URL] It's a solid, SIMPLE program that works. I used it for a little over 8 weeks (I think). Check out the forum post linked in the program.

    That said, Starting Strength and StrongLifts are solid too. Both are simple strength programs (not really geared for size).

    Thanks guys. I had already been looking at the Simple Beginner plan so I think I will just start there. I am pretty inexperienced so that will probably be my best bet as of right now.

    Thumbs up

    Hey, You should really try Starting strengh or Stronglifts 5x5. They start really light and focus on technique. They'll also have you doing all the right things to stay balanced. Don't up your cals until you're really in the swing of things and lifting heavy. Also maybe try and work in some small amounts of cardio e.g. 10-15 mins of light running.

    Eventually when you need to eat to keep gaining strength, you'll need the cardio to keep the fat away, trust me.

    Now is a really good time to get yourself a tape measure if you don't already have one, and log at least your waist measurement once a week at the same time each week. If the tape stays the same or goes down, while your lifts are going up - you're doing things right. If that waist starts going up, you're eating too much and getting fat again. Unfortunately that's a lifelong balance you'll need to monitor. There's no reason why those loose bits around the waist can't go eventually, but it's probably time for you to put some meat on those bones!!

    Well done on the weight-loss. This next part of your journey is much more fun!!

    Thanks! I have started hitting the weights pretty good and being really clean with my diet. I don't have a six pack by any means whatsoever but I can actually see my top (left and right) ab muscles if I suck my gut in real tight. To me that is awesome considering its the first time I ever have.

    5x5

    You need something simple, try the 5x5 method. Split the workout into upper and lower body parts. So Monday & Thursday, upper. Tuesday & Friday lower. Pick 2 exercises per body part and do 5 sets of 5 reps for each. That's it your done. Stay with this for at least 6 weeks. As your getting stronger of course increase weight. Good luck!
