High Sets vs Low Sets
Targeting the Right Set Strategy
Many people get caught up in the right strategy for repetition count,
and rightly so. Getting the repetition range is important for
reaping the best results from your workout. But don't forget the set
count as well. How many sets you perform also plays a big role in
how you affect your body.
You can choose to perform your sets in a vast range – some people use
lots of sets, and others not so much. When setting the amounts of
sets you will use in a workout, there are some parameters to
Some training schemes call for a single set and other involve tons of
sets. But there are two numbers you always need to be aware of.
That is a single set and a multiple set.
Research published by the National Strength and Conditioning
Association in one of their journals revealed that performing one set
will help maintain the current muscles condition, but performing more
than one set (at least 2-3 sets) will promote muscle growth. So if
you rely on a single set, you won't make much progress. To push the
muscles to grow you need to perform at least two successive sets.
How much more than two sets you use is up to you, but you want to get
into a set groove where you are abele to challenge, stimulate and
exhaust a muscle while still leaving enough fuel in your tank for the
exercises that will follow.
You can use this knowledge about sets to shape your workout. Say
that you aren't feeling all that well, but you don't want your
muscles to lose ground. You simply need to perform at least a set
per exercise and you will enable your muscles to maintain their
current development. So a single set maintenance strategy can work
for times when you are not feeling as well as possible.
For multiple sets, a smart strategy is to focus a higher set range on
the compound movements such as the bench press (4-5 sets) and back
that up with fewer sets for the isolation style movements such as the
pec dec (say 2 sets per exercise). In this way you can give the main
emphasis to the key movements while also gaining ground from the
smaller isolation lifts.
Have a set strategy is smart for making the most possible gains from
