    Hi guys,

    I like all the programs on the site and they have helped me a lot but for this year I was thinking of starting a new program and creating it myself specifically for my needs.

    Therefore, i was wondering how you guys normally determine the sets and reps needed for an exercise.

    I was going to program 2 sets, the first being the top set and the second being a back off set. However i figured that i would ask this question since in push pull lower 2.0 there are sets of 3 or 4 programmed and got a little confused about what approach i should take.

    I know that this is quite a hard question to answer since there are many details to reflect on for a new program, but would love to hear your thoughts on the factors you consider when determining how many sets and reps are needed.

    Thanks and happy new year guys.

    Thanks for the clear explanation and looking forward for the new updates that are to be introduced. No doubt that they will be awesome!

    I have another question which is a little bit arbitrary. I will be using the 2 sets as my starting point, but how long would you suggest I wait until I introduce the third set for a certain exercise that needs more volume?

    Do you have a fixed method when you add the third set such as always adding it after the first block? Lets say for example the first block is 4 weeks. Or do you recommend otherwise?

    Thanks
