If you are a baby boomer and want to start a weight lifting fitness program, then here are two things that you need to focus on, correct lifting form and breathing. If you are interested in making gains in the amount of weight you lift, that will come in time, but the most important variable is that you lift the resistance correctly without injuring yourself. I would recommend hiring a personal trainer in order to work on these principles. If for some reason you cannot afford personal training on a consistent basis, then sign up for a few session and learn the basics of weight lifting and be put on a program that you can manipulate every six weeks When the six weeks are up, go back to your personal trainer, take another session and then be put on another six week program in order to keep progressing. If you can see your trainer more often that is better, but as long as you are consistent, you will get the results that you want. Remember, safety comes first, so learn the correct way and you will not develop bad habits.
