    Simple question


    How many total sets would you do for each muscle if you hit it after about 3-4 days rest?

    Back = ??
    Chest = ??
    Delts = ??
    Bis = ??
    Tris = ??
    Traps = ??
    Calves = ??
    Quads = ??
    Hams = ??
    Calves = ??

    This is way to general of a question. But if your looking for a very basic answer/idea. 12-20 sets per MAJOR muscle. (Back. Arms. Legs. Chest)

    general? i would say optimally it is extremely an individual response that changes with age, training age, work capacity, sleep habits, life stress, and possibly other factors. its like a trick question that cannot be answered.

    but if you must have an answer i am a fan of this one:

    The question was to general/vague. The response of course ideally would be more specific and dependent on the individual.
