I'm looking for a solid fitness plan (types of exercises, sets, repetitions, etc.) for kind of getting in shape. I want to train the whole body, use some weights, but I'm not trying to get bulked up or anything. I'd rather do more reps with lower weights.

I found this: www.bodybuilding.com/content/the-female-training-bible-everything-you-need-to-get-the-sexy-body-you-desire.html

But it seems a bit too generic. Are there any professional workout plans that have been accepted by the majority of the fitness instructors?

Thanks for any kind of help, links or directions I should take.

Doing 50 repetitions of 1kg dumbbell raises won't do anything for you.

Best plans for a beginner looking to get into weightlifting and train the whole body are:
