Repetitions and Sets
"Repetitions" and "sets" are terms used to describe how many times you do a specific exercise.
The number of repetitions and sets you do depends on your goals. If you want to gain strength, do a few sets of a few reps with heavy weights. However, you may want muscular tone and endurance, which means a few sets of many repetitions with light or medium weights.
