    Depends on the weight used, the level of exertion used, number of sets per week etc.

    Also depends on your goals. If you are training for a 1 rep maximum back squat (for powerlifting) then it makes more sense to do heavy low rep back squatting than it does to do light high rep squats

    Hypertrophy on the other hand, can be achieved using a wide range of reps. For squats specifically, I would say it's most practical to stick to 5-10 reps. High weight, low reps tends to make technique and core bracing a bottleneck. High reps tends to make cardiovascular conditioning the limiting factor.

    Sounds like low intensity if you can do this 4 or 5 times a week.
    I can tell time. Time cannot tell me.

    Low intensity and low volume are never good for getting bigger.

    A 3x5 on its own, yes--but it's more about weekly volume, not each individual exercise's volume. So if you did a 3x5 followed by a 3x15 (which I think is basically what Fierce 5 does--I haven't looked at it in a while) that's a lot more volume than just hitting one 3x5
