That is one set.

For unilateral (only doing one side at once) you count the number of sets on each side. So you do 12 on left, 12 on right, and then you've done "1 set". Another 12 on left and another 12 on right is "2 sets".

Sets is about how much each muscle worked. It would be wrong to say you did "2 sets" for 12 on left and 12 on right, as each muscle only moved 12 times, not 24 times.

I believe that it is just 1 set of 12 total, but it would be one set for each leg (I hope that makes sense).

ok .... if I do the Hip Flexor exercise and I do 12 reps with my right leg & the same with my left is that

1 set of 12 ...or...

2 sets of 12 (meaning one set for the left leg & one set for the right leg)?


likewise, for other STR exercises like Alternating Dumbbell Bicep Curls

thanks!
