I was reading an article by a personal trainer that said in general females don't do enough sets to see results, then went on to say that females do too many sets with not enough weight, and that they often do total body workouts instead of splits which hinders progress.
How many reps and sets per body part should a female that's been lifting a year or two do, and what sort of split do you recommend??
Also how many different exercises for each body part do you recommend?

I think most of the people in here will first ask you how much you weigh, how tall you are and what you want to achieve before they can answer you
Being female has nothing to do with it. Tailor your training to your goals.
Squats work better than supplements.
"You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei
