since you where not so kind to provide a working example here is
a) define the potential:

V[eps_, sigma_][r_] := With[{x = sigma/r}, 4*eps*(x^12 - x^6)]

b) compute the radii

LJRadii[eps_, sigma_][e_] :=
  Select[r /. Solve[V[eps, sigma][r] == e, r],
   FreeQ[#, _Complex] && # > 0 &]

c) define a integral condition

BohrSommerfeld[eps_, sigma_, m_: 1, hbar_: 1][e_, n_Integer] /;
   e < 0 :=
  Module[{r1, r2, r},
   {r1, r2} = LJRadii[eps, sigma][e];
    Sqrt[2]*Sqrt[m*(hbar*n + (4*eps*sigma^6*(r^6 - sigma^6))/r^12)],
    {r, r1, r2}]

d) and now, comes the "DO loop", that compute the function
for energy values between [-0.9,-0.01] in steps of 0.0125

BohrSommerfeld[1, 1][#, 0] & /@ Table[e, {e, -0.9, -0.01, 0.0125}]

Ooops ! there is no "DO loop", let try a version with out
stuff like "&" and "/@"

Table[BohrSommerfeld[1, 1][e, 0],{e, -0.9, -0.01, 0.0125}]

Now lets make a matrix

Table[BohrSommerfeld[1, 1][e, n], {e, -0.9, -0.01, 0.0125}, {n, 0, 4}]

and there is again no  "DO loop"  and I never found out for what a
"DO loop" is good for in Mathematica. I had times where I forgot
the syntax, that can be found by typing
