    Keep it relatively heavy for 6-8 but make the 8th rep a struggle.
    Work a main like squats 6-8 reps
    Then 2 auxiliaries:
    Barbel lunge (each leg) 10-12
    Leg press or split squat 1-10reps Trust me, to knock out 10 at good weights is damn hard!!!
    4 sets of this

    Ive been experimenting lately doing 5 sets of 20 rep squats. I actually prefer it to the old 8-10. I chose a weight where i was doing 12 and struggling a little then toughing it through to 20.

    OP for somthing different you could try rest pause training. . For example I Chose a weight I can only do 12 of>I do 12> rack it> take three breaths> and do the remaining three reps. Total 15 reps. The pump is insane. its like doing high reps with a fairly moderate weight. i do upper/lower body split. I do three sets on 2 exersises on each body part twice a week. You can apply this to whatever rep range you want. i chose 15 as i am rehabilitating from an injury.

    i am a fan of a few low rep sets followed by more higher rep stuff. like what wendler 5/3/1 does with the big but boring accessories.

    also, SQUATS AND MILK!!! lol i am a fan of high rep squats.
    you can call me "ozzie" for short.

    I'm same. Newbie gains are great. I'm up 5kg clean muscle and dropped
    3.5%bf in 8weeks
    Cycle helps by letting me dip lower in kcal on some Days and burn hard

    to follow up my first post:
    I've seen more gains slowing down negatives to 4-5 seconds than moving more weight for more sets

    The eccentric part of the movement is where growth occurs
