    If you do one single bicep curl, then you have done one rep, if you do two bicep curls then you have done 2 reps...etc.

    So if you do 6 reps on an exercise, then have a rest, then that means you have done ONE SET of SIX REPS...if you then do that 6 reps again, you have now done TWO SETS of SIX REPS...lol.
