How to start using weights

The worst thing you can do when you start lifting weights is to think you’re Arnold Schwarzenegger on the first go. So start light, and increase as you get stronger.

  • Start with a weight that you can lift 10 to 15 times with proper form (this will be between 2kg and 8kg for most people).
  • Begin with 1 or 2 sets of 10 to 15 reps, and slowly progress to 3 sets or more.
  • Gradually increase the weight by 5 to 10% when you can easily do the recommended number of sets and reps.

How effective is weight training?

Finder’s wellbeing expert Amelia Glean answers

amelia expert comment
Weight training is a great form of exercise for people of all ages. Two or three 20 or 30-minute strength training sessions a week can result in significant health benefits such as increased muscle mass, stronger bones and improved metabolism.

1. Fat loss

While weight training isn’t always considered part of a weight-loss programme, lifting weights can help you burn just as much fat, or more, than running or cycling. This is all to do with the building of muscle, which burns calories at a greater rate. Weight training can also boost your metabolism.

2. Bone health

Most of us know that strength training can help build and maintain muscle mass. What many of us don’t know is that strong muscles lead to strong bones, and having strong bones minimises the risk of fractures due to osteoporosis. Weight training routines will often target the hips, spine, and wrists, which are the sites most likely to fracture as we get older.

3. Posture and sleep

Weight training comes with other bonuses, too, according to numerous scientific studies. Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania, found that people who participated in sports like aerobics, biking, and strength training were more likely to report “sufficient sleep” than those who got no physical activity. And as strength training helps to build muscle, you’re also helping to support sites like your lower back, which is great for improving posture.
