Anybody who can help me with a question about weightlifting

I need somebody who really knows about weightlifting to help me with a question about the amount of weights I'm using for different muscle groups. I don't want to write it all out here - it's more of a PM thing. So can you PM me if you want to help?

(Then I'll delete the thread.)

Whats wrong with girls trying to stay fit They are not supposed to be some stick thin princess so that guys with low self-esteem can make themselves feel more manly.

Doing weightlifting doesn't mean you are physically fit

Where did I write anything about being thin? Guys donít like girls with muscles thatís a fact....

Girls should do more reps and less weight. While guys should do low reps but heavy weights =)

Yeah that's true. In fact, girls don't want to a lot of muscles either. There's a difference between lifting weights sometimes and bodybuilding.

Re: Anybody who can help me with a question about weightlifting

drake is a girl! I had no idea. I am also thinking of starting with some weights, but have no clue how to do it properly. I want to build a little muscle, but not too much. Mainly I just want to be stronger and more fit. So far I've just been using weights for squats, so my bum hurts.
