What Weight Should You Lift?

Want to start resistance training but actually don’t know where to start?

The KEY is proper technique tho, so if you’re unsure, get some guidance on form before adding load.

If you’re a beginner (or returning to fitness), bodyweight exercises are all you need.

Then, if you’re ready for a little more, use some DB’s in the rep range of 10-15 reps.

If you can’t get 10 reps, it’s too heavy.

If you can do more than 15 reps easily, it’s too light.

The idea of ‘progressive resistance’ is to increase the weight over time.

Just don’t do too much too soon.

Resistance or strength training is really the MVP in your health journey, especially as you go through menopause.
