The number of sets, and the number of reps in every set is not difficult to figure out. Some people are sure that a certain number of reps is the key to huge muscles, but they're wrong. Don't fear if you couldn't do that 8th push-up, or the 10th curl. This is not bad, this is good. The last rep you were able to do, is the rep that really does something for you. That's when the muscle is really torn, and therefore, your body will make it stronger than it was before it was torn. That's how it works. - That's also why it's crucial that you don't work out before the soreness in your muscles is gone. Don't tear it when it's not rebuilt yet! That's really bad for you, and it will actually just make you weaker.
As a starter, you should do one session where you find your personal strength, and then you'll be able to make yourself a program.
See how many push-ups you can do, how many curls, dips, squats and all the others. When you know what 'level' you're on, go from that. Don't try to do as many push-ups as that world famous acrobat in the fitness video. Work with your own personal abilities, otherwise you'll just be disappointed. - Of course this goes the other way around as well. If someone told you: "You should do 8 dips", and you're able to do 9, then do 9!
I suggest you start out with three sets of each workout. That's what I do, and it works just fine. When it comes to the number of reps, your body is the master. Do as many reps as you can in each set, and you'll know that you've pushed yourself as much as you could. Trust me, that's a really good feeling.
A lot of people say that more weight and fewer reps is the key to getting big, but read this: It's not about looking big, it's about looking strong! And if you - like me - wanna work with your own bodyweight, the only option is to add more reps along with gaining more strength. And I can honestly say that I think the majority of the ladies and gentlemen out there value a strong body way more than a big, broad, pumpy body. Don't you?
