In brief: Right away

Check with your lasik surgeon first, but there should be no prohibition from weight lifting.
The main precaution after lasik is rubbing or touching the eyes as this may dislodge the corneal flap. Lifting, jogging, and other non contact sports are usually ok as soon as the vision improves -- generally by the next day.
