    That's a lot of sets for a max effort 1 rep. Maybe you should go back and look for context clues OP.

    I would be more inclined to say maybe 1 set of 10 reps? But that's ludicrous as well. Ignore that BS

    He mentioned drop sets. So that is probably why it is 10-1 reps.

    However, I think OP needs to read the magazine again, and provide a more concise description for us to say anything more.


    I doubt ANY magazine, or semi-logical workout would have someone do 10 sets of 1 reps on arm exercises.
