Tremor: This could be a intention tremor, or could even be due to some weakness if you've been doing a lot of weight lifting recently. See a physician if your symptoms persist or worsen.

Weak muscles or the: weight you are trying to lift is too much for you. Try lifting by going Low and gradually Grow (ie: lifting more and more, as you get better in lifting the previous weights).
I am sure when you follow this method, your shaking will disappear. If not, then see your PCP.
