    To determine where to start with sets and reps, here is a guide to help:

    Beginners

    • New to exercise or back from a long break
    • 1-3 sets of 10-12 reps

    Intermediate

    • Currently working out 2-4 times per week
    • 2-3 sets of 12-15 reps

    Advanced

    • Currently working out 4-6 times per week
    • 3-4 sets of 15-20 reps

    You may find that performing higher reps for lower body exercises is easier than higher reps for upper body exercises, like push-ups.

    Example: You may easily perform 4 sets of squats but struggle with 2 sets of push-ups. Work to find your balance of sets and reps for each exercise as you progress.
