9. Wear some nice under armour clothes or other workout stuff, don't be showing up to the gym looking like a clown
10. If a bigger, stronger guy asks you how many sets you have left, politely say "I just finished up, you're all set" even if you still had 3 sets left.

Honestly, I'm not going to the gym for a bit until I get used to working out a bit. I have crossbar weights (think that's what they're called) with 100 pounds of weights. Obviously that's high to start out with, but how much is good for a beginner and how long before I add more? Push-ups are obviously good to do but what other things should I do?
