2. Get a competent trainer

Although you can find great strength training materials in the library and online, there is no substitute for the services of a qualified trainer. If your budget does not stretch to a private trainer, see if you can find a local group to join. Reading materials give a good general overview of the principles, but if you try to make a program for yourself unaided, you are unlikely to know how to adjust it to your specific goals. Someone who is not familiar with how to lift weights properly can easily give himself or herself a painful injury if they proceed without any supervision.
