    Hi Joe! Really enjoying the app!

    What is the ideal reps/sets/ weight range? Specially for legs and delts.
    I know you say load is better, but one of the most impressive quads were from Tom Platz and I think he used to do 10 sets of 10-20 squats. (Nothing to do with nostalgia lol, just trying to learn)

    Search through some videos as I’ve answered this before. But specifically for quads and delts, I agree – you need BOTH. The easy way for most to accomplish this is still with maybe 4-6 straight sets to failure in the 6-10 reps range (whatever exercise). And then finish with some horrible drop set to 30+ reps (hitting failure points before each drop). Most people, one set done like that properly is good enough to start. As your legs get massive and progress stalls, add another, etc.

    Thank you so much for the response Joe. I’ve been trying to watch as many videos as I can but you have so much content, that’s amazing tbh! Just tried the leg day brutallity and I can’t feel them!

    I think Platz is a very poor example. Not only did he (most likely) have very good genetics for legs but the way he also trained was so out of this world that it would send even the majority of the most hardcore, hard working bodybuilders to hospital in an instant. If those stories I’ve heard and read about his workouts are true he isn’t a normal human being by any measure.

    Also the way he performed certain exercises isn’t quite exactly what I would personally advice to imitate 🙂
