    How many sets to do for squats?

    I know this has been asked before plenty of times, I have searched and look at other threads but everyone gives different answers..

    How many sets should be done for squats to gain mass?
    I currently do 3x5
    I have read articles from the supersite which people talk about doing 4-6 sets with 5-8 reps 80% 1RM for max results...

    For those more experienced with squats how many sets do you use, which has given you max results (of course with eating properly..)???

    You mean quality not quantity?

    OP it doesn't matter.

    You get progress, it's progress.

    you need higher reps for legs IMO because they are a bigger muscle and muscle fibers in the legs are tougher

    I usually do 4-5 sets of the compound lifts.

    1 set of warm-ups, and 3-4 working sets. The rep range depends on whether I'm going heavy that week or just pumping so I'll stay in the 6-12 rep range mostly. I also pyramid up at times, but sometimes I'll do drop sets.

    I do 3x12
    Form is a big thing though, bad form means little gains and higher chance of injury.
    Veni, Vidi, Vici.

    ΠΚΑ

    Bench - 1x315
    Squat - 1x405
    Deadlift - 1x435 (Remax day to come)

    I do believe I use correct form, and I have made some gains with squats. But I wanted to know what sets would help me maximize my results....

    Here is the link to the page I was talking about in the first post.
