A Simple Weight to Strong Arms

If you are looking for stronger, more toned arms, a single set of weight-training exercises is a good way to start

If you are looking for stronger, more toned arms, a single set of weight-training exercises is a good way to start. A recent study reported in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research shows that a single set of repetitions is as good as three sets when starting out. The study participants were placed in a single set group or a three-set group. By the end of the study, those who performed just one set of each upper body exercise per workout had gained just as much strength as those who had performed three sets. A single set will help build initial strength before moving on to a more demanding weight-training plan.
