    Based on the equipment you have, I recommend trying out the Fierce 5 Novice Dumbbell program. Yes, it's only 3 days. You could always do some cardio on your rest days.

    4 reps or 4 sets?

    Only being able to do 4 reps using 60% of your 1rm would be very odd.

    I'll repeat my point from before that you should be using a different weight for each exercise. You mentioned adding reps and sets, which is perfectly fine, but adding weight should be your first...

    I would follow the program as-written. If you're losing no more than 1% of your bodyweight per week, eating adequate protein and following a good resistance training program, it's unlikely you'll...

    Ideally you should be using a different weight for each exercise, to provide adequate resistance. Just change the plates during your rest between sets/exercises.

    You mention you have a barbell too - why not invest in some 5kg and 10kg plates? If you get a squat rack you could get a couple of 20kg plates too, which would allow you to load up for the heavier...

    Thanks, I started out doing sets of 20, but after the first week switched to more frequent sets of 15 which resulted in much less fatigue.

    Edit: just noticed the other part of your question. My 5...

    Back in May I did a Push Up Challenge to raise money for mental health support. In total I did 3046 push ups in 21 days (actually 19 days because I took two rest days, so on the days I pushed I did...

    Serious jealousy of those here who don't store much belly fat. Apart from love handles, I seem to gain fat entirely on my belly. 3.5 months into a bulk at present and the last semblance of ab...

    If your goal is adding muscle and size, you need to be going up in bodyweight and adding weight to your lifts. I would consider cutting back on the cardio and definitely prioritise getting at least...

    Are your dumbbells up to 40kg each, or 40kg total? If you're a beginner, the first should last you a good amount of time, the latter you'll need to upgrade sooner rather than later

    Would have repped if I could. 'Strength Standards' annoy me - genetics play a huge role, I've heard stories of people deadlifting 400lb the first time they touched a barbell, while others take years...

    Shoot for a surplus of 250 calories while consistently resistance training - at least half of the gains should be muscle. You'll need to cut to lose fat eventually, but try to bulk for at least 4...
