Thankyou for reading this.
I'm a beginner to the gym and my primary goal is to reduce body fat and increase muscle mass. I'm currently planning to get down below 10 % BF and then focus on building up muscle. But i also understand for beginners to an extent you can have fat loss and muscle building simultaneously but i don't know how long this will last.
My workout primary focus on compound workout
Deadlift, Squarts, Shoulder press, Bench Press, Leg Press, Leg Extension and few isolation for Bi and Tri ..
Coupled with Push ups , Pull Ups and Dips for warm ups... ( I'm doing a workout split into 3 days ( Push Muscles / Pull Muscles / Lower body and abs ) Do i do my warm ups on every day or do i have to have a recovery time and should stick to specific warm ups for specific muscle groups?
What i'm worried about here is the sets and reps. How many sets and reps should i be doing? I'm confused what I should focus on initially muscular endurance, strength, or hypertrophy? ( How many sets and reps )
Also, When do I begin taking supplements? I have started using Intrapro ( Protein Isolate ) as my after workout shake. Someone told me as a beginner i shouldn't be using this as my body will get adapted to it and down the line it will be difficult for me to build muscles.
Would like some views on comments on this. thankyou for your time
