    Does the 8 sets of 8 routine work?

    Hey guys, i heard that a lot of people use a routine that involves doing 8 sets of 8 for 3 exercises. One body part a day is what i do so i dont know if it would put enough work into the muscle to get the growth im looking for. Shoulders are my weak point and this might be where i want to throw this in.

    For example: Chest
    Flat bench: 8 sets 8
    Incline bench: 8 sets 8
    Decline bench: 8 sets 8

    my usual workout is 3-5 sets at 6 to 10 reps each, pyramiding the weight for the most part. Do you think this is a good routine to put a shock into the muscle and get some good size. Thanks in advance.

    I heard of doing a superset of ten reps for tens sets but I dont know if they do any other excersizes than that I would think you would be pretty much dead after your chest workout

    Your workout now sounds good. Most of the time if your not seeing improvement its the diet. Ill usually hit 12-16 sets per muscle group.

    Dude, instead of all those presssing movements I'd do a set of flyes too... maybe

    Flat bench
    Incline Fly or Flat fly
    Incline Press (switch off with decline every other week)
