    I'd say it's a decent general average, but certainly not set in stone.

    Not limiting training to a specific range of reps. I have sets that vary from 1-20.

    Depending on the lift, goal of the lift, phase of training, etc.

    I think if you were to add all that up, and figure the percentages of total sets conbined per week, per body group, it would be more accurate. Like saying legs should be 20-26 percent of your total number of sets that week. Works better than a given number of sets. Because depending on your rep range, number of sets changes drastically. And its a good baseline for the dbags that do 30+ sets of chest and bis a week but only 3 sets of squats and no deads. Lol.

    Then you're not working hard enough in each set. Each set should take 100% focus and effort and there should not be an "easy" set in there.

    That's one way to do it. The occasional set of 20 is also a good idea especially if you've been restricted to only 6-12.

    Would it be okay to add some curls to the accesories and calf raises Etc that aren't included in the templates ?

    It's fine, but don't make them the focus of the day. Biceps and calves are relatively unimportant when it comes to strength.

    I'm currently doing the periodization template as well and I've only done 4 sets of curls total in the last 7 weeks and my biceps have still put on size (not an astronomical amount but they've grown). I thought that I wast doing enough at first either but once you up the weights or up the reps, I'm pretty cashed out by the end of the session. Keep it up bud.
