Learn how to lift barbells, i.e. focus on squat, deadlift, clean and press ( that's much more productive then benching, IMHO ).

Consistency matters. Don't buy into all the broscience, muscle confusion is a myth. You say you want to "loose fat and gain muscle" but just know once you're no longer a beginner, you'll have to choose one for the short term. You can accomplish both over the long term, but not the short term ( unless you're a beginner ). Progression is important, i.e. to build muscle you've got to lift heavier weights over time.

Good luck.
