These activities should work all the major muscle groups of your body. To gain health benefits, muscle strengthening activities need to be done to the point where it’s hard for you to do another repetition without help. A repetition is one complete movement of an activity, like lifting a weight or doing a sit up. Try to do 8 to 12 repetitions per activity that count as 1 set. Try to do at least 1 set of muscle strengthening activities, but to gain even more benefits, do 2 or 3 sets.
