Right now im trying something which is basically 2 upper days a week and 2 lower days. But both uppers are different (vertical and horizontal) and both lowers are different (quads and hamstring dominant). i do each of the 4 once a week.
my work sets vary but the muscles worked that day get anywhere from 6-18 sets. is this too much? for example today i did 5x6 with rows, bench, pulldowns, db bench, and dips. thats 10-15 sets for chest and 10 for back some of the chest sets went to failure. normally i’d say thats fine but then my next upper day in 4 days will be 6x3 so it’ll be 12 for shoulders and 12 for vertical back. 3x12 is the third rep scheme. same layout goes for the leg days but less exercises. is this too much volume?
