Answer:

Maintaining muscular balance is very important.  When starting a training routine, select similar number of exercises and sets to opposing muscle groups (i.e., abdominal & lower back, hamstrings & quadriceps, biceps & triceps, etc.).  The risk of joint injury and altered posture can be increased when greater training volume is performed on one muscle and not on the opposite muscle.
