    What was your rep scheme before "bulking?"

    My diet is in check i have posted it on here a few times to have it critiqued. My rep scheme before bulking was 4 sets of 12. I always lift til failure.Then once i started bulking i switched to 10,8,6,6... should i forget about the 10 and 8 and just go like 6,6,6,6 or 6,6,4,4...any sugestions

    Its hard to tell you exactly what rep scheme to use. A powerlifting set scheme would be reps no higher than 6. If thats what your going for i would say use that range. People put on mass with different rep ranges. That really depends on your fast/slow twitch fibers. The only way to really get a good idea is to try both. I know alot of reps for my quads is the best for me. Upper body I like to go anywhere between 8-15 reps. If im not feelin the burn, I'm not gettin anything out of it.

    OH yeah-- you say you got your diet in check--If you havent gain anything in a month or so i would try bumping everything up. Like decadbal said it is the most important factor when trying to gain or cut up.

    Then I would suggest 5 sets of 6 reps, being that you are coming off of 4 sets of 12 reps. You should have a solid base to transition into a major strength phase.
