You should start off with the basics, such as Bench Presses. You should use weights that are a challenge but not impossible for you and do 3 sets of 10 reps. Make sure that you choose the right weights for all your exercises as this will ensure that you get the proper strength level.
You should also make sure that your workout incorporates crunches and squats as well as leg curls and barbell curls.
