    to build mass, you do high reps, few sets or the other way around?

    Mass is done with diet. To get big you need to eat.

    Typically, the hypertrophy range is between 5-8 reps. Thats just a general consensus.

    As far as what you were originally asking along with diet, you generally do few reps at heavier weight to build mass. Check out WBB1 and just follow that.
