    # of sets

    I was wondering how many sets per muscle group you should do?
    for example ill do 4 exercises 4 sets each for chest. Is this to much Ive seen some people do four sets total for chest. Which is best?

    is it working?

    no, what your doing doesnt seem bad. but i must say its dif for every person...what works for those other guys may not work for you, and what works for you may not work for me or anyone else.
    if your trying to bulk up, keep the weight high, and reps lower.


    hope that helps a little

    For me it varies, generally I try to do 4 sets of 3-4 exercises for chest, back and shoulders, 3-4 sets of 3 exercises for quads and 2 exercises for hamstrings and only 3 sets of thre exercises for, each, triceps and biceps (since they are smaller muscle groups). For abs and calves I do 3 sets of 2-3 exercises each.

    I also stick with the 3 sets, except for chest. Again it is different for different people. I have the bad genetics, and my chest I have to work like hell. I usually do four set's and pound the hell out of it. The rest of my body hell if I just look at the weights, I will grow.

    Im still with the modified HIT program, so never more than 2 sets per excercise and when I can do it right, only one.

    magic pills- you get huge, ripped AND strong with no side effects whatsoever. and best yet, you never have to leave your couch! they used to be real cheap, but you know about supply and demand.........

    Anabolic Review History Lesson 101

    A long time ago there was this guy who keep posting a question asking for the best steriod , with no side effects.(Like there is such a thing) Ok he was flamed recentlessly and I have to stick up for my brothers on this on because he really deserved it. To make matters worst he got extremmely pissed and began cussing every one else out on the board in cluding the MODS. He would post topics like I have asked you once before but since you have ingnored me before( then he would name sevearl mods, senior members by name ect.) Through the flaming of this guy thus the topic of MAJIC PILLS was born. You can only find them here at AR as they do not exsist anywhere else in the world. Up until recently I thought Mke was the only one who supplied them!LOL Just a little Anabolicreview History lesson.

    Oh yeah, I do 5 sets for every excersie and at lest 4 to 5 excersise per body part. They legs are alot stronger and can handle more.I start light with high reps and increase the weight with each set lowering the reps as well but not going lower than 6 reps per set. I do occansionally max out at the beggining of a workout (I rep max weight) to see where I am at strentgh wise. I have trained like this for the last 6 years and it has worked very well as long as I keep my caloric intake up to where it should be.
