Default Female help in lifting

Ladies on this site, or if the guys want to answer too that is fine, what is the first thing I should work on? I have a decent body already, I am 5'5" and weigh about 130 pounds. I do not really need to lose weight but is there some body part I should concentrate on first?

The best and wisest thing to do is not to concentrate on ONE body part; if you choose a fullbody routine approach, every area of the body will get its fair share of work...same goes for a split body part approach, which works on all areas throughout the week...but, for beginners, the fullbody approach is a better choice of starting place.

I concur with 5kg, A whole body routine sounds right for you.

My advice is start with the big lifts. Squat, Deadlift, Bench. I'm partial to a simple 5X5 routine. It's easy to follow and helps you practice form with the big lifts.

Being a Newbie and not knowing about something are two different things and nobody could accuse you of the latter you just did a meet, remember, which means you know what you're doing in terms of training, form etc.

In both bodybuilding and powerlifting, you should work "whole body" but concentrate on your weakest point.

Thanks for the advice. Looks like I will be focusing on the whole body then. As for my goals I have never lifted and just want to bulk up some for a change. I am in decent shape but just want to add some definition.
