I started lifting weights at home two months ago and I'm seeing some results, I've lost just under half a stone and I've lost 1-2 inches from all areas.

My workouts mostly include lots of squats and lunges whilst holding 20kg.
Over head presses and dumbbell rows at 6kg.
And stomach vacuums, I think that's the right name h

Generally I'm very weak so I imagine this is beginners weights!

What do you do in your workouts? How long have you been lifting for and how much weight do you lift?

Maybe ask MNHQ to move this to "The Weights room" as you'll probably get more answers and there are other threads on this.

I've been doing Crossfit for a year, so a mix of barbells, kettlebells and dumbbells- exact program determined by the coaching staff. I weigh 63kg (just for context on lift vs body weight) Weights depends on the rep scheme, but assuming 8 reps

Deadlift 65kg, front squat 45kg, back squat 55kg, push press 42kg, strict press 30kg, clean (from the floor) 45kg.

On KB, I swing 28kg Russian style (to shoulders) and 20-24kg overhead for 12-15 reps. Dumbells, I'd probably row 15kg, and "benchpress" 12.5kg.

I'm somewhere in the middle of the class in terms of strength. I need to go more often really as stuck at these weights for a while.
