What Weight to Choose When Lifting

Fitness Blender family,

As you know by now, we love to include strength training in our routines. The efficacy of lifting is proven when it comes to weight loss/maintenance, and (of course) when it comes to being more functionally fit.

However, if you haven’t lifted before, it can be a bit intimidating, and even confusing when it comes to choosing what weights to lift for various exercises.

A great general rule of thumb when you’re just starting out (but definitely a rule we always remind ourselves of) is to lift lighter weights and really focus on form, balance, and range of motion, especially until you’re more confident.
