Like "Please remember to do some warming up and streching before you do any lifting routine. And always make sure you start off with light weights and more reps until you get built up a bit. Then you can add more as it becomes easier. Also afterwards, do a cool down exercise. If your into serious lifting, only lift every other day as your muscles need that day off in between to rebuild. Take care, and if you use free wieghts, have a spotter to help if needed. John"
