This is such a fun question to see on a Careers related website. As someone who has steadily seen myself lift heavier weights over the past 2 years I would say these things helped the most:
1. Stretch before workouts, and after.
2. Make sure you practice your form first and foremost - assuming you're talking about compound movements like Squats, Deadlifts, Benchpress, Overhead Press etc. Don't lift weights until you're 100% certain you can do that weight with perfect form. If you can't afford a GREAT personal trainer for a few sessions to practice form, YouTube videos are good too - watch from reputable experts who lean more into the science of movement.
3. Keep focusing on your form and technique (can't over state how important this is)
4. Once you're certain your form is perfect, just keep doing the reps. Practice progressive overload (either add more weight, however tiny amount, or do more reps the next day you do that workout) so you're always doing more than the previous workout session
5. Make sure you have rest days and don't over-do each muscle group
6. Eat A LOT of high quality protein and carbs
7. Sleep as much as you can afford to

To make the most of your learning experience, consider using YouTube as a primary resource, as it offers a wide variety of content covering routines, muscles, recovery, stretching, lifting, and cardio at different difficulty levels. Start by searching for specific workout programs or channels that cater to your fitness goals and preferences. Make sure to subscribe to these channels and dedicate regular time to watch and practice the exercises.

If you have a budget for it, hiring a personal trainer can provide valuable guidance, especially when it comes to improving your form. Research local trainers, read reviews, and choose one who specializes in your fitness goals. Schedule an introductory session to see if their coaching style works for you.

Lastly, don't underestimate the value of working out with a friend. Reach out to someone who shares similar fitness interests, and plan regular workout sessions together. This not only provides additional motivation but also allows you to exchange tips and support each other in achieving your goals.

Hello Rifat!

Lifting weights is super cool. While I don't have ᴀɴʏ experience with weights, these people are good to follow on YouTube:

- HASfit | His beginner video: https://youtu.be/U0bhE67HuDY
- Sean Nalewanyj | Good video on preventing injury: https://youtu.be/q9Cux6Ed20g
- BullyJuice | Another beginner video: https://youtu.be/0Zl_ozyhwRo
- Jeremy Ethier | Good topic around calories: https://youtu.be/Zl_grb33STg

To stretch before working out, I recommend this video:

Make sure to be safe while practicing, and enjoy weight lifting!
