I will be 21 years old in january 2014. Height=5.8 foot approx weight= 65kg / 143.3 pound approx.

I do 100 push ups in 4 sets = 25+25+25+25 and 80 leg raises in 4 sets = 20+20+20+20 
(I complete it in 40 to 45 mins). 
I do it 5 days a week, Monday to Friday and take rest on Saturday and Sunday
to relax muscles. 

Is it ok to build good biceps and 4 or 6 pack abs? I am a computer science student so I have to spend much time sitting in front of computer and don't get much time to walk or play any sports.

I think I walk nearly half a mile or little more than this in my daily routine.
I sleep 6 hours or 6 and a half hour every night. 
  • As Dave points out in his answer, none of the exercises you do target your biceps in any appreciable way. I'd suggest doing some research or muscles are their movements before asking your next qeustion.

You are not doing any bicep exercises, so no, this doesn't look like a good plan to get pretty biceps. Add some pulling exercises like pull-ups, chin-ups, or curls.

For abs, you'll need to do a little ab work (such as your leg raises), but more importantly you'll need low body fat through diet and cardio.

It's not part of your question, but since you're a programmer, I'd definitely recommend working on posture, pulling exercises, and squats to avoid a "computer hunch" and tight hips.

  • you mean push up are not for biceps ??

  • @user2851468 Correct. Push-ups are great, especially for your chest, triceps, and shoulders, but they don't work the biceps much. Dec 1, 2013 at 20:25
