I have been working out on and off for about 10 years, but have been going at it seriously for about 2 years or so.
The thing is, there are a lot of exercises that I just don't know the names of that I would like to start doing, and getting the best form possible (I have no ego, I want to avoid injury) and get really strong lifting weights the right way.
Plus, I don't work out with anyone, so I want to work out without depending on anyone.
Please, hook me up with some links, some titles, and if I can find these vids used off Amazon that would be awesome.
Sometimes books are better than video,s IMO.
This one is pretty good 1989 but still great.
Joe Weider's Ultimate Bodybuilding by Joe Weider and Bill Reynolds
And not forgetting
The New Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding by Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bill dobbins 1999.
Both on amazon
As for dvd's i am not sure.

Train,train hard.Eat,eat lots and sleep even more.
Books and the right authors on Youtube.
I can't really comment on books as I don't own any yet...
Squat form, type "Sensei Squat" into youtube. Start-a-Learnin'.
Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
I find exrx.net quite helpful, not vids but still handy.
As far as books go, I'm currently reading McRobert's Build Muscle, Lose Fat, Look Great. It seems to have pretty good advice on form for the basic (or best) exercises. As for video clips, I've found good instruction on the crossfit website, especially for olympic type lifts and other more "exotic" exercises. Just click on "exercises and demos" in the left column. Youtube is good as well, as mentioned, but you really need to be familiar with the author because you'll run across everything there.
It is currently a fad, at this writing, for boys to think they need a "six pack", although most of them don't have an ice chest to put it in.
