Some basics I learned from my lifting days...

 

When you exersize one set of muscles, give equal time to the opposite set. Example: If you bench press, you must also do a rowing type of exersize.

 

Take a day off between exersizing major muscle groups. Exceptions are abs and calves.

 

All real power comes from your LEGS.

I've been a practitioner of Shotokan Karate for about 5 years... What I would recommend for chest development is something called "Hypers"... While lying down on your stomach on the floor, get a person to hold the bottom portion of your legs down while you pull your upper body towards the ceiling (NO HANDS!). Keep it up at a moderate pace and you'll feel a good burn in your abs if you are doing it right... :)

weight training should be done in tandem with cardio-vascular work as the blood (and therefore oxygen) need to flow thru yer muscles for most effectiveness...

 

best is to do something like running, swimming, soccer, etc... something strenuous, and then do weights right after...

 

if you go to a gym ask for an induction/training session with a trainer so they can show you how to use the equipment properly so you get the most out of them and don't do any damage...

 

oh yeah eat meat too... maybe get some protein shakes or whatever... remember your ability to build noticeable muscle mass depends on your genetics at the same time.

 

cool, oh yeah eat spinach, haha popeye :lol: toot toot!

Im a big time long-distance runner and i only lift after running. Your muscles are more relaxed and you're less likely to hurt urself if you are warmed up. Also, if u want to get larger muscles and not just endurance, then try building up the weights. For example, on the bench press i do 3 sets of 15, and i bench every other day. Add another 5 lbs each day u bench. If u cant handle the increase then dont add the 5 lbs and try it the next time. It may not seem like much but after a while it really builds up.

eat all the food groups, no junk food. which means no fast food, soda, etc. i havent eaten fast food or had soda in four years (since i started running). There are some good resources such as The Glycemic Index which basically tells you the amount of energy that you will get out of a certain food. If you look at the list, the first column is the glycemic rating, which is energy. if this rating is higher than 55 then it is good for energy. the higher the rating the better. for breakfast i usually have a good cereal, toast, bananas, anything with a high amount of complex carbohydrates. for lunch i have a sandwich or a wrap. for dinner i have soup, meat, potatoes, string beans, corn, rice, spaghetti. and for snacks i have nutrigrain bars and such. pasta is great for energy. as for how much, it depends on how many calories u burn. im guessing that i eat right around 4000-5000 calories a day, sometimes 6000, and i still only weigh about 158lbs.

 

oh and dont have anything really acidy, like orange juice, apple juice, apples, etc., before doing a strenuous activity. acid=big time cramps

 

sorry if this is lengthy but im a little obsessed :blink::D
