    Need advice with sets/reps

    I just finished a 10 week strength training stint-low weight high reps now I want to switch to bulk for the next 6 weeks or so but not sure which would be the most effective sets/reps combo. you always hear/read people say do 3 sets some say 4 sets per exercise. Then when it comes to reps some say use same weight but decrease the number of reps with each set-ex. 10reps, 8 reps, 6 reps. Then some say pyramid up with weight and decrease reps with each set. ex- 1st set x-amount of weight for 10 reps, 2nd set more weight for 8 reps, 3rd set more weight for 6 reps. Then some suggest pyramid up the weight but end with a set to failure. Has anyone had decent success with any of these types while trying to bulk up? Or does anyone have any other suggestions I might try? Thanks for the help

    How much progress can you make in 6 to 10 weeks?

    Its just a tentative time frame it will vary depending on my progress then I will go back to strength training for a few weeks.

    I'm not you and can't pretend to know what's best for you, but, most guys will have their best progress by sticking to something long term. I'm talking months and years, not just weeks. But, given the very short time frame you've set for yourself, I can't see the set/rep protocol making too much of a difference. Just do whatever feels good to you.
