Aim for 15 reps and three sets per exercise.

When you're just getting started try to keep things simple. Performing 15 reps (repetitions of the movement) and three sets of each (doing those 15 reps three times) is a good place to start, explains Davis. You can mix it up as you get more comfortable with the moves and need more of a challenge.

So, for example, with the moves above you'd do 15 squats followed by 15 push-ups. Take a little breather then repeat that two more times. Then you move on to your walking lunges and lat pull-downs (and repeat those three times total, too). You can really do anywhere from eight reps to 15 (and even just two sets, if you don't have time for three), but "it’s not a bad idea for beginners to start with a 15-rep range to get comfortable with the exercises," says Davis. And while there's some debate over whether three sets of an exercise is really best, "it’s a great beginner model," says Davis. Don't over complicate things when you're just getting started.
