    Name: Scott

    Age: 26

    Gender: M

    Location: Brisbane, Australia

    Occupation: Sitting at a desk on a phone.

    Past Professions: Scaffolder

    Training Experiences: Zero

    Current Weight: 100kg

    Height: 183cm

    Goals: Lose roughly 10kgs (maybe more, not sure), build strength, mainly in upper body.

    Basically I am overweight, and it shows. I have read some of the beginners programs on here, and of late, I have been doing some light exercises and cardio workouts to prepare myself for the gym. I am a complete novice when it comes to weight training.

    I have only just seen Kyles starting point for being prepared to start at the gym, and surprisingly, can already do all of the exercises, 20 or more, and can run for a reasonable amount of time / distance, however not to the 6km in under 45 minutes. Having said that I am not far off, and have lost 7 kgs in around 6 - 7 weeks.

    I have acheived this by taking up cycling and eating a lot better than I was previously.

    I currently have a bench, a barbell, with 100kgs of weights at home, and am not particulary sure on where to start off. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, as I'm not sure that one of the programs as listed in "Beginners; look here" would be suitable.

    ---------------

    I should probably mention that I have been using the weights, but I feel that I am just sort of bumbling through the programs, without any real knowledge on what to do when, and for how many sets etc..

    Name: Liam

    Age: 21

    Gender: Male

    Location: Perth, WA

    Training experience: Nil

    Height: 174cm (5ft 8inches)

    Weight: 67.5kgs (149 pounds)

    Any interests: I play football (soccer) for a local club over here in Perth and have been playing indoor beach volleyball for about 2 years socially. Just started getting competitive in football so am looking at building up my strength and burst capabilities. I'm finding that I can run a full game and then some without being overly tired but would love to be able to be quicker than I already am. After a bit of research (and testing on the weights) turns out I'm going to need to build up my strength to see some more gains.

    Why I joined AusBB: Well I was put on to a few sites about a month or so ago by my brother-in-law as he has been into lifting on a casual basis for years. After a bit of a chat with him about nutrition I thought I'd do my own investigation into what would suit me in terms of strength training to compliment my goals. Like every other guy I want to be cut and have a sweet set of abs to impres the ladies :P but overall, I'd love to be able to further my sporting abilities.

    I've been reading a lot through the articles and I look forward to chatting with you all

    Any reason why you dont think any of those programs would be suitable?
    As I have recently learnt, doing full body compound exercises 3 times a week moves the most amount of muscle in the shortest amount of time, leaving you with more time to enjoy your life

    Hey mate, welcome to the forum.

    PTC and Fadi know what they are talking about so I would definitely strongly consider one of the programs they've listed in the beginners look here thread.

    When you say you're worried about your ability are you talking about your form on new exercises?
    If so, then investing in a trainer might be a good idea, although if you're going to join a gym then you may not need a trainer as the staff will most likely give you some help for free once you're a member. They might not spend a great deal of time with you, but one would hope they would at least give you feedback on your form (If not then time to find a new gym!).

    Best of luck!
