Arms, back, core, legs... Kind of everything. You need more than just improved arm strength. Depends on what kind of sword action you are doing. Fencing, reenactment play, theater, general want to swing a blade around, or other blade arts?
And like Lady K said- use something else and swing it around a bit. Feel what muscles you are working as you do this.
Yes, I am a cynical and jaded jacknape. I try to see all three sides of the coin- do you?
In a flat world there is an explanation to everything.

One handed slashing, I would not concentrate on any muscles but on the dexterity with the sword.
