If you're new to strength training, you might want to start with the Spark Fitness section. Coach Nicole has a bunch of short 10-15 minute strength workouts that will teach you some basics. Otherwise, I highly recommend that you buy or borrow these two books.
New Rules of Lifting for Women - Cosgrove Body For Life - Bill Phillips.
Both are good beginner strength training books that will teach you the basics.
I have recently begun strength training. I am doing it only with free weights at home. I am trying to use different written strength training routines but having trouble with the lingo. Lat raises? Mountain climbers?? Russian twists?? Does anyone know of a picture reference guide to different common strength exercises???
