    Everyone interested in weight lifting may know a little about the debate between volume training. Which one do you think is most effective? For the sake of argument I'm gonna say 10 sets or less is low volume with 12+ being high volume. I personally find 9 sets for bigger muscles and roughly 4 for the smaller ones beneficial.

    Sorry didn't make it clear.
    10 sets per body part I.e back/ chest
    4 sets per smaller body parT I.e bicep / tricep

    10 sets of what? Either way, I don't know if most people would consider 10 sets of anything as low volume.

    And besides, there's probably a time and a place for both. And it depends on the person, amongst other things.

    As high volume as your body allows without over training is a good thing to aim for.

    Are you talking on one exercise or a whole workout?

    Muscle growth is high reps.

    I bet you also want strength gains too then you're stuck with the 1-5 rep range.

    Just for ****s n giggles do a 10*10 rep/set squat workout with medium weights for your ability. Sore body the next day is guaranteed.
