For anyone starting out with weight training I highly recommnd Bill Phillips Body for Life... when I first heard of this I was skeptical, but I;ve got freinds that have been on it, and yes it does work, after seeing my freinds, I fully beleive those before and after pictures. I'm just starting out on it myself. but by far in terms of equipment, a good set of dumbbells and a bench is all you need. you can work out every body this this simple setup.
With the Bill Phillips system, nutrition becomes easy, weight lifting is done 3 times a week, cardio is also done 3 times a week. And the workouts are short time wise, but they burn far more than what what i was tought in college!
