Arnold used to shock his muscles every time to don't let them get used to his training, so he was changing his training routine or rep number often. He recommend doing 10 reps by starting with one rep of maximum weight then lowering the weight and adding more reps. So if you are doing bench press and let's say your maximum is 200 lbs then it should look like this for example:



200 lbs - 1 rep
180 lbs - 2 reps
150 lbs - 3 reps
140 lbs - 4 reps
120 lbs - 5 reps
100 lbs - 6 reps



Those numbers are just an example, you know your own maximum weight to lift in one rep or two rep. This workout is good because you don't rest between rep you just continue until you do 10 reps if you can. It is great for shocking your muscles and make them to grow.
