What weight lifting/exercise routine should I follow as a beginner? I am 6' and 200lbs. I am joining a gym and want to know what's best for exercise and weight lifting for just normal toning up and maybe some belly loss. The gym has treadmills, elipticals, etc and weight area that I know nothing about...Any help in both or either is appreciated! Including how often a week to do it and any rotations. I've never worked out before, but am generally not weak.

If the gym has trainers available, use one to help you set up a routine that will fit your goals.

What he said. Single best exercise for speed is the deadlift IMO.

BMo, why do you think the deadlift is the best for speed training? Is it because it targets the hamstring, lower back and shoulders?
