I'm a 25-year-old female and have always been interested in fitness, but I've never tried weight lifting before. I'm looking to incorporate weight lifting into my workout routine and need some guidance on how to get started. I currently do mostly cardio and some bodyweight exercises, but I want to challenge myself and improve my overall strength.
I have access to a gym, but I don't know where to begin with weights. Should I start with machines or free weights? How much weight should I be using? How often should I be doing weight lifting sessions?
Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
