    which is more effective?

    doing 2 sets of 8 reps
    or
    doing 3 sets of 8 reps?


    an example of one of my workout days is

    monday - chest/legs

    flat BB bench 3x8
    incline DB bench 3x8
    dips 3x8

    squats 3x8
    calf raises 3x8

    I respond well to heavy weight so if that's my choice 2x8 for me -for chest and legs that is...

    my back responds to volume.
