You’re going to do all of that in one session?

Yes.

Right.

It’s not really that much in the first few weeks, in fact, are you new to this?

one set seems pointless unless you haven’t touched a weight in 3 months.

Yeah. That’s what I was going to get at. Week 1-2 is only 10 sets per session, and Week 3-4 is 20. Wouldn’t be too bad if just getting into weights. However, Week 5-6 would end up at 30 sets. Just seemed like trying to do too much at once.

The thing is I got mono, and had to take a month off. What should my minimum amount of sets per workout be? Also, even if it is one set, the volume remains the same through out the first 2 weeks and the last 3 weeks.

Some days I may have as little as 14 sets. Others as many as 22. It really depends on your routine, and rep/set scheme.

me likey, me likey

what are your goals?

My goals are mass and strength, but I’m mainly focusing on mass. And about the amount sets, gabex I understand what you were saying about my sets going from 10,20,30 however the volume goes from 15,20,15.

then i’d say fuck full body routines and either do an upper/lower split or a once a week bodypart split.

Training 3-4 times a week, not including minor cardio/abs.
