Being a great advocate of targeting a muscle from different angles, I have decided to substitute the regular 3 sets of 8-12 reps with 2 sets of 8-12 reps (for every muscle) while keeping the total volume same and increasing the total number of exercises. For example:
12 sets of chest comprising of 4 exercises
12 sets of chest comprising of 6 exercises
The end goal is to gain size while building symmetrical muscle definition. So, my question is, are 2 sets for 8-12 reps similar, if not better, for providing sufficient levels of muscle hypertrophy?
