    So I went and got some advice from some people and I was directed to ExRx.net to design a work out that works for me.

    Here is what I chose: http://www.exrx.net/Workouts/Workout4PPTS.html

    On the Weight Training Guidelines of ExRx.net, it states "perform one set of 8 to 12 repetitions to the point of volitional fatigue" and I am unsure exactly of how many reps and sets I should actually do because I think that 1 set of exercises isn't very much.

    Q: How many sets of 8-12 reps do I do for the different exercises?

    It has been scientifically proven that sets of 3-4 and reps of 12-15 will help you keep your 6 pack.

    Look, I don't know how to read the site (ExRx). I am a bit confused and I am just asking for some small help. So, please, answer this question.
