I started going to the gym recently but DAMN I'm a NOOB. I need to learn many things .I can tell I'm doing many exercises wrong or not correctly.but I get that because Its still just the beginning and I plan on keeping it up.


Hey man, everyone starts somewhere.

I always tell new people to start by doing the 3 basic exercises. These exercises make up the foundation of your body. Benchpress, squats and deadlifts. If you don't know how to perform these movements, I suggest looking up instructional videos on youtube and practicing with a broom stick at home. Always start light to develop your nervous system and muscle memory. That's a common mistake new people do, they put on heavy weights and try to lift it with shitty form to try impress the people around them, when they're just making a fool of themselves. Don't worry about the weight because ultimately, you're there to improve yourself. Good luck and stay safe man, you're gonna make allll kiiiinds of gaaaaiiinnssss.

I started weight lifting when I was 19.
I couldn't tell you my PR, I don't ever max out. I was never really into it, I prefer doing the standard 10-12 reps for 4-5 sets per workout.
Although, I'm really interested in starting a "negative" workout. I've seen a few guys at my gym who only do 6 reps but it's all negatives and they're pretty big guys.
Anyone have any thoughts on this?

The eccentric portion of the exercise is where most of the muscle trauma occurs so it would make sense that they'd see lots of gains that way.

Basically was miGneto said. Although I don't do negatives myself, I do explosive concentric movements since I'm a football player. Just find what works for you mate.

Started Working out age 17. Currently age 18 ( Fourth Year High School)

I started working out sadly to lose weight and impress girls which is why I took weight training but turns out I enjoyed it and I stuck with it for the joy and stress going away. Fairy Tail was the Anime that really got me going on Working out cause the Music was amazing and pumps me up! But during my Senior year I decided to join a gym instead of Weight Training. Near January, 2014 I haven't been recently going to the gym due to family issues and tests and exams I had to study for.

Bench: 240lb
Squat: 360lb
Deadlift: Can't remember exactly or estimating.

Don't worry bro, majority of guys start out that way haha. It took me almost a whole year until I started seriously lifting. Before I graduated highschool, I barely benched 200lbs. Less than a year later, I'm benching 320lbs. After I started lifting seriously and being determined to make myself stronger, my overall strength and PRs shot through the roof. Hope your situation works out (no pun intended) and you continue making gains in the gym bro.
