Your bodybuliding training is a little short, you will need to do an hour or a smidgin longer. Look out for a book/magazine/website that will provide a good workout set. I say set as you will need to split your body parts into 2 or 3 groups and do these through the week, restarting next week at the beginning.

You dont have to do it this way, there are many other different ways to train such as full body training 3 times per week.

Everything else you should memorize.

You can easily get by with 2 dumbbells, a barbell and about 100kg of weights until you get stronger. At your height and weight I am assuming you cant pull 100kg in a deadlift, as you get to that strength you just buy some more plates.

Read up a lot on exercises such as deadlifts, squats, barbell rows, proper benching technique, pull ups. has some good articles for newbies.

You can also start with pushups and chinups (two great exercises) and once you can do 10 of each increase the difficulty by adding weight to a packback or (in the pushups case only) elevating your feet higher and higher.

I stress the importance of deadlifts and squats they will make you bigger than any other exercises known to man.[/url]
