As a bigginer, I recommend that you stay relatively light with moderate intensity and concentrate on form. Learn the basics and concentrate on proper form, don't worry about what others are doing or your ego will get you started off on the wrong foot. Do poundages that you can do with the strictest of form, as your body acclimates to to the new stresses being placed on it, you will be able to increase the weight while staying in good form. I personally did just the opposite, when I frst began working out I was too concerned with what others woud think seeing me with little weights. My form really suffered because of it, and a year or so later I finally got myself on track by learning proper form and the poundages dropped considerably, but I was actually growing faster. Stay with the basic movements and hit each podypart once or twice a week, depending on your recovery abilities.
