Be careful Thomas. Doing stength exercises is great for the ego and I used to work out hard for years. Then I blew out my shoulder doing bench presses, and had surgery, but it never fully recovered. Eventually the muscles will become stronger than the tendons and as you get older, maxing out will injure you. Ask if its really worth it over the long haul.
A better approach, and the one I went to, is to get cardio and work out with much lighter weights to get some strength and shaping, burn cals, and get flexibility.
If people concentrated on the important things in life, there would be a shortage of fishing poles, Hells Bay boats and Gator Caps.
