    It does not matter what we do, what we do doesn't apply to you. You are not gonna get the same results following a routine that any of us on here do.

    Really you are going to have to find the right rep scheme for progression that works best for you. Whether that is 3 x 3, 3 x 5, 5 x 5 or whatever, you are going to have to try stuff out to see what works best. Nobody here can really tell you what is gonna work and what is not. Obviously we are giving you advice and recommendations based off what has worked for us and what has already been established as a proven form of progression, but in the end it always comes down to trial and error. Actually testing the rep scheme out and seeing what the results are.

    For instance a lot of people on their sets do the standard 3 or 4 sets of 8-10 reps, etc. For me personally, it wasn't until I started doing pyramid sets, so mixing high reps with low reps that I started to see my best results. My point is you need to figure out what works best for you and then apply it to your training program.

    However low reps are not best for adding size. Its more a strength thing to do heavy triples. I know you have a12 rep back off set too but not enough volume for your goals
    You do know that if you have no strength, you may not have size either...

    Thats what i thought also, if i get strength then size would come with it.

    Anyways, yes i will try and do other rep range and see how it works out for me. That pyramid thing sounds interesting. Im gonna look more into that!

    It can be

    Read the sticky thread on size vs. strength to clarify in your mind that 5 rep sets can certainly add size.

    As to whether you need 5 sets (presumably you are talking about 3x a week for a total of 15 sets), that depends on your level of experience. If you are a novice, you could start with 3x5 3 times a week and increase as necessary. increases in total workload are the only reliable way to consistently make gains over time.

    How about you pick a proven routine, follow it, and eat. Check back after several months minimum

    All rep ranges have their place. High and low reps.
