What is training volume?
There’s a problem with the basic definition of training volume.
Volume is defined as sets x reps x load. This looks good on the surface, but when it comes to building muscle, you have to make sure you have intensity added to the equation. If you’re using too light a weight and not doing enough repetitions to bring yourself close to failure, then the intensity is too low for those sets to be effective.
Training volume is better defined as the number of hard sets that are within at least 3 or 4 reps from failure. Anything less is either a warm-up or junk volume.
The amount of sets needed to maximize muscle growth is often stated as being between 10 and 20 sets, which is a big range. The limiting factor to how many sets you need to grow as fast as possible is recovery. The more sets you can do and fully recover from will build the most muscle. But this isn’t the number one priority. To find out what that is, watch the video pinned in the top comment.
