Ask any personal trainer and they will tell you that yes, you can benefit tremendously from a routine for working with weights to help to tone-up those problem areas whilst improving your shape and overall appearance.

However, when beginning such a routine or getting involved in an online course on weight training from the internet, do keep the following in mind:

* Set your goals

* Set a timeframe for your goals

* Figure out how to meet your goals with an exercise program

* Structure your program

* Maintain your program

Now, before we get into the specifics on creating a routine for lifting the free weights, do keep in mind that it doesn’t really have to be (your training that is) relegated to just free weights only, basic calisthenics-anaerobic and aerobic ones that is-should not be left out.

For a list of my favorites-

The Royal Court Exercises:

a. Hindu Squats.

b. Hindu Push-ups

c. The Bridge


A combination of

a. Unlimited Ab-wheel rollouts to failure

b. Unlimited Chin-ups

c. Unlimited Chair dips/ Push Ups

d. Unlimited Pull-ups

e. Unlimited Burpees

Other factors to Keep in mind when picking up a routine for working with weights are as follows-

- When beginning any routine for working with weights, it is wise to have a medical check up.

-Always warm-up and stretch prior to your workout.

-Perform some kind of cardiovascular exercise for 20-40 minutes AFTER your weight training workout.

-Rest for a full day between your workouts, or alternate the muscle group worked out such as upper body one day, lower body the next.

-Eat a balanced and healthy diet

So coming up with a free weight training routine shouldn’t really be that hard as long as you ensure to follow some of the tips above.

They definitely won’t hurt and could possibly help out a lot.
