i want to take protein shakes kasi ang payat ko but then i wanna work out din kaso bilis ko mapagod. i just wanna tone my muscles...
i don't need education, i need inspiration.

^ I do barbell training and CrossFit, and I love protein shakes. Challenging lang sa umpisa, but it gets better. I don't get tired as easily as when I started.

Give it 21 days. Try to be consistent. Drag yourself to the gym if you have to. Get real food and up your protein intake. Lift weights. Magtotone din yan. :)

^ Try the Chocolate Cake Batter flavor of Syntha-6. One of my faves. I even make protein brownies out of them. Depende sa brand ng protein yan. Right now, I'm on Optimum Nutrition Platinum Hydrowhey Turbo Chocolate. Masarap din naman. I even mix it into my morning oats. :)

I want to lift weights. Do I really need a gym instructor?

^You might need someone to at least show you the correct form and spot you on the bars and such.

Note that the bare barbell, without any weights, is 45lbs itself. Would you be able to lift it onto your back for a squat, or lift it up with your arms for an overhead press?

^^ Never ako naghire ng gym instructor, but I did consult some fitness coaches on how to build a program nung nagsstart pa lang ako. Also did a bit of Googling on movements and form.

I started with dumbbells, then shifted to barbell after some months.

Parang ganito yung ginawa ko dati:

Mon - Back and biceps
Wed - Chest, shoulders, and triceps
Fri - Legs

A good resource could be the Starting Strength book by Mark Rippetoe, which explains in detail strength training through barbell exercises. It's what I'm reading right now. Parang anatomy lesson na rin. hehe.

@Frozen Toes: care to share your dumbbell program? What weight did you start with?

I'm a beginner. I want to start without weights first. But I will do circuit training (basically, those ^ but without weights) plus boxing (with focus on core muscles, per my trainor). My goal is to tone my abs. Question is, do I need protein shakes?

^ True sis! May girls na natatakot magmukhang pang bodybuilder ang katawan nila pag nagbuhat sila. Di nila alam na yung mga nagkakaganon na body, maraming oras ang ginugugol sa pagbubuhat at super strict ang diet. Pati tulog at supplements nila binabantayan nila.
