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.

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