I'm a complete noob (well, sorry to mislead you, I DO know what a dumbell is ;D) at weights, but I did do some pressups a while back and managed to get to 70 in a minute. However - I looked absolutely no different than when i started at 20 a minute..
I want to gain a bit of muscle WITHOUT any fancy equipment (none at all if possible because I'm really poor), specifically bulk up my shoulders and arms.
I know there's a sticky thread but I just want to focus on the one element specifically, so I'm not sure if anything would change and how.
I don't want to do any lower body stuff since I can already get up the stairs in just over a second (yes I did time it). But it's scary how physically weak I can be sometimes with upper body.
SO. As of yesterday I started doing as many situps as I can handle, then as many pressups.
1. Should I work out every day? Every two days?
2. Are these excercises the best for what I'm trying to do?
3. Is there a specific structure I should incorporate for what I'm trying to do? (eg. 20 reps then break, 10 of something else, 20 more etc.)
*without joining a gym sorry for being picky, I'll be moving around a lot
