do starting strength and keep your carbs at a sensible amount. Easy!

(I'm trusting that you're not a spammer, don't let me down!)

haha, ok, the spam comment was only half serious.

Google Starting Strength. It's a beginner weight program that teaches you the big lifts and sets out a routine for you. Very popular. That'll get you on your way.

As for losing weight, it's all about your diet. You can't out-train a crappy diet. No more junk food, LOADS of protein and try and keep carbs fairly low (how low depends on your metabolism, it's just something you'll have to work out for yourself).

Good luck and happy lifting! Any other queries you have there's people on this forum much more knowledgable than me who can answer pretty much anything.

Starting Strength:

http://startingstrength.wikia.com/wiki/ ... ength_Wiki

there's a link to the program on that site. It basically just teaches you the most important moves and puts them together in a 3 day a week program.

Do this and you will get stronger and bigger. Definitely.

for the beginner progam you're only doing 3 exercises, 3 times a week. You'll be fine mate don't worry. Just get stuck in.

OK, I'm going to differ from RS right now, although he is correct in SS being a good program. On the stamina part, you could always start out with bodyweight stuff. Pushups, bodyrows, some ab stuff, bodyweight squats, etc. Grab a weight plate or DB and do some 2 handed swings. Do them in circuits, say 10 each for a couple of rounds. After a few weeks of this, you should be responding and have developed some stamina, and should be ready for some weights. As to diet, well that's where you're going to start seeing abs. Read the stickies in the D and N section to see if you're on the right path.

As distinct from as "know it all", I mean an O.M.
