    As Timeah said if you want to keep to 4-6 do a couple of extra sets for additional volume.

    Couldn't find a related thread that answered my question and didn't think it worthy of a new thread so here it goes.

    Lets say I wanted a "volume" day, do I calculate total weight moved on heavy day then divide by volume reps to find an equivalent amount of work with higher reps?

    Or is it a percentage? If so, what percentage should I aim for if heavy days are 5 reppers and volume is (planned to be) 10-12?

    Or do I just fuck around until I find the weight I can lift at that rep range instead of overthinking.

    Fucked if I know what to do, no science in my training at all, I just try to lift things, eat stuff and grow a bit

    I wouldn't over think it.
    Take maybe 60-80% of your working 5 rep weight and do 10-12 of that.
    If it's too light, up the weight, if it's too heavy, drop the weight. Can depend on your rest time and TUT as well

    Did sets of 10 at around 80% of the 5 rep weight, 90 seconds rest.

    Got a mad pump, lol.

    Can't tell you how much this helped me. I've always struggled to get full depth in my squat and just assumed my body just didn't work that way! Found this thread while researching a new power rack and just squatted for the first time since watching it. Had to drop some weight off the bar but man it's a good feeling to get true arse to grass squats!

    cheers Strung Out!

    Good vid.
    Start light, even just the bar until you are confortable with your firm. Then gradually add weight.

    I've been squatting for a while so I was getting up in weight but had plateaued so I figure that is to do with my form.

    I had to drop down a good 30 kilos once I got the form right! I'm not worried about the number though. Just happy to get it right. I think some of the foot placement and hip alignment will help with my deadlifts too
