    How do I know how many reps and sets should I do for targeted workouts?

    (Disclaimer: Please don’t mind my rep,I first started using this when I was a young teenager and didn’t understand the principles here and what was appropriate to discuss in these threads!)

    I just decided to rejoin again because I now have an interest in visiting the gym and I have an idea of what areas I want to target such as my core, back, and legs but mostly for toning and of course my glutes but not too much

    I want to know how I can appropriately set up a routine with the right amount of sets and reps for each area I’m targeting, as a beginner. Can anyone educate me on this please? If I should lurk more please guide me to where I should look first

    No worries, we all start somewhere! For a beginner, I'd recommend 8-12 reps for each exercise, sticking to 1-2 sets to start. Focus on good form over how much you can lift. Take rest days in between muscle groups to avoid burnout. Don't try to target specific areas too much at first, a full body routine will balance things out. Consistency is key - aim to work out 3 times a week. You'll see changes in no time! Feel free to ask any other questions, many friendly folks here are happy to help newcomers.

    Absolutely, welcome back to the gym! For beginners aiming to tone specific areas, start with 3 sets of 10-12 reps for each exercise targeting core, back, and legs. Focus on compound movements like squats and deadlifts for overall strength, and don't forget to incorporate rest days to allow your muscles to recover. Feel free to ask for advice at the gym or explore reputable fitness websites for more tailored routines
