Less is not always more,and more is not always better.
So when it comes to weight training, is it better to do more (sets and reps) or less?
The answer is..
You need to try it out for yourself to know.
I have tried less sets for my butt and legs and I have tried more sets for my butt and legs
and what works best for me is more sets like 12-15 sets instead of 6-9 sets for example
Also, when it comes to rep range,It works great with 15-20 reps for some exercises and 6-8 reps for other exercises
When I tried less sets, I also made my workout as intense as I could,but still I did not had the best growth
And when I increased my sets,things started to happen.
Also, some muscle groups will respond better to high reps,and some muscle groups will respond better to low reps.
I will write more about this in another article of mine in the future.
So my advice for you:
1, Start out with about 9 sets per muscle group at first and train hard and intense in every single set
and do it for about 2 months or so and then see how your body reacts and develop.
2, After 2 months, start adding more sets and do 12-15 sets per muscle group for about 2 months and see how your body reacts and develop.
3, If you want, you can try only 4-6 sets per muscle group and see how your body react and develop from there
Make sure to do every phases intense enough,and train the same muscle group 2 times per week.
