| That's a great start. You want to gain muscle mass and so keep up the jogging, but not too intense or often, maybe 2 - 3 x per week. When you're doing push ups, go for maximum reps. Keep going until you can't anymore then rest about 1 - 2 min and go again. You may not be able to do as many in your second and third sets as in your first, but that's ok. Also, you should add pull ups or chin ups if at all possible. Push ups and pull ups combined are a pretty great upper body workout. Make sure you change up your hand position for push ups, doing wide hands, hands directly below your chest and everything in between. This will engage your muscles differently and keep them responding. Do the same for pull ups, change your grip from forward to reverse and change your grip width.|
Lastly on exercise, since you are already very lean, you may as well shred up your abs. Nothing boosts your confidence more than a six pack. Any routine on youtube will do, just stick to it.
Do your push up pull up and abs day 3x per week to prep for the gym.
Make sure you are eating lots and lots of food. Good healthy food, you know the type, the non-processed stuff. Get loads of protein.
Hope these suggestions help.
