answer
A multiple-set resistance training routine involves performing multiple sets of each exercise included in a workout. An example of a multiple-set training routine is having an individual perform three sets of 12 repetitions for each exercise included in his/her workout.

The number of sets, repetitions, and resistance used can be chosen based on the individuals goals.
