Which do you use and how often? Does it change from ME Lower to ME Upper?

Yes use them all................I love doubles and do well of them but true max effort is a MAX single.

Heavy triples are much more TUT than singles so they are a good option if you are trying to gain weight.

I work up in 3's until I hit a max triple and then keep moving up in singles until I hit a PR/max there. The only exception for me is good mornings, for those I work up in triples and hit a max there but I don't work up in singles afterwards.

This seems on par with everything I've read from Louie/Westside, ME pretty much means a max single with good mornings being the primary exception. I've read a lot of lifters say they don't do GM's for max singles anymore. I also read Jim Wendler say if he could do it over again, he never would have used them for singles and only worked up to a max triple.

I would do them all just to change things up.
