First time I started benching, I started at 10 x 75, because that's what my weakass could lift about 3 years ago in grade 11 (not trying to put anyone down like if they only lift 75, it's just how I view myself then).
When I tried again for the first time about 4 months ago, I did 85, expecting it to be my 1RM. Not even fucking close. I added 10 lbs consecutively each time until I hit 130, THAT was my 1RM. (which is now my less recent 5RM I might add)
Just keep adding a slight amount of weight until you find your max, and then lower it according to how many reps you want to do.

However, to start with you want no weights. My personal philosophy is that you need to have good foundations to build a good house. The good foundations for muscles is to be able to do 10 perfect form, slow (2s up, 2s down) push ups and pull ups. If you can't do them, then don't start weights yet because you won't be able to make it through the sets and will get yourself disheartened and are more likely to quit.
When you can do those push ups and pull ups then you can start the weights, as I said it depends on what you're aiming for but 5 sets of 20 tends to be a nice middle ground between high and low, so you'll get a nice body but not too skinny and not too vein popping bulky.
To choose the right weight it's all about form, there's no point in fooling yourself into thinking you can do all the reps when you're swinging your body to do a bicep curl, that's not working out your biceps at all. The right weight means you can get to around the 3rd set without killing yourself, but it's hurting how and you can maybe only do 10 in 3rd, 5 in 4th and 5 in 5th. That's good, it means you're at a decent weight and you've got a goal to shoot for. Once you can do all 5 sets, up the weight by another 5kg.
Also don't forget to breath! DO NOT HOLD YOUR BREATH like this guy, it's how lifters damage themselves and end up fainting after a heavy lift. Also the protein window is important to get gains quick, take a protein shake with you or eat some poached egg whites within about 30 minutes of working a muscle group.

Advising a new comer to the gym to complete pullups and pushups before weights is bad advice, especially if that new comer is overweight, since body weight is far more than small dumbells.
Dumbell bench pressing 2x12kg (26lbs? at a guess) DBs is less taxing than pushing your body (all-be-it levered) off the ground
Lat pulldown 40k (88lbs) is better than trying to pull your ... whatever lb body over a bar.
Also the maximum amount of reps should be around the 15 mark. There is also little truth to "bulk vs tone" i.e. the girls hitting light high reps and power lifters hitting huge tiny reps.
Go to /fit/ on 4chan - for all the dick heads and boasters theres actually plenty of geeks who shut down any bullshit with real research/evidence, the sticky alone will dispell many myths.
"Starting strength" and "Strong lifts" are a good place to start - throw in some "body building arm isolation" if you want to see quicker aesthetic gains, I personally found tricep isolation to be lacking from the above two routines as someone with fairly poor pushing power.

The thing with bodyweight exercises for someone whos overweight is just not do them. Its learning the correct form and working body weight exercises into your routine while doing the weight training. You build up your strength slowly but part of this is by learning correct form. Take for example pushups, a way to start learning nice form it to start from the top and slowly lower yourself down while keeping your back in line. I agree though for weights a set of 12 is usally the most youll ever want to go for. In all honesty low weigh high reps and high weight low reps is true to a degree but any good lifter will do research and do the correct exercises to be built well for looks, strength and endurance. That little saying is something all beginners are told and its only a piece of advice you should follow up on to build your knowledge.

**anonymous used "*roll picture*"**
**anonymous rolled image** Get a friend to stick a rod with a rope in your ass. Tie weight onto rope and hold. Add more weights if needed. "How do I go about finding the right weight to start for each lift?" You've never lifted before fag
#15 - dblej (03/13/2015) [-]
Do what you can do, I've been doing 3 sets of 8 repetitions. If I can do all three sets easily I'm not lifting enough. If I get through the first two, but the third I get mostly through I've got a good weight. Protip: Always go for that last half rep to really make the gains. If I can't finish the first or second sets I'm doing too much weight. Go for less weight until you get the forms and motions down or you'll screw your body up.
