Questions about working out?
Perhaps someone who has experience can help me? I am beginning to work out, but I used to do a lot of push ups, like 200, and that pushed me towards stopping them completely, because performing a work out for that length of time discouraged me, so I just gave up.
Now I’m working out again, I’m doing a few situps, I have this springy-iron thingy for my biceps, and in a few days I will resume push ups as well. Right now I’m doing about 3 sets of 10-12 reps each, occasionally 4 sets. What I would like to know is, is that sufficient? I do not intend to have a huge intimidating, body builder body, I just want to lose fat, and be a tad muscular, not in an overly muscular way, but just a bit muscled, like most movie stars nowadays, defined but not too bulky. Will the sets I am doing suffice? I do not want to push myself towards completing 200 reps each workout, because that will bore me out and make me stop completely again. What do you think? Also, since I am trying to lose fat, in conjunction to gaining some muscle, what should I be eating? I am avoiding white carbs, have a lot of fruit, water and green tea, eat a lot of chicken and fish, brown bread, oatmeal, and I try to eat every 3 hours not too large dishes. Thanks :)
