I wonder whatever happened to mrlakramondas. I learned almost as much from him on these boards as from Lyle.

Yeah, I don't know either.

He used to troll a lot on the old forums. But on this forum, he was amazing.

I don't know the guy, but I agree he was great around here.

If I were to guess (and it's only a guess), it may because because he just got bored of all this discussion. There's only so much to talk about, and a lot of the same mundane topics get recycled over and over again. How many sets, how much protein, critique my program, etc etc etc.

At some point you want to get to deeper level discussion on things and the reality is that there aren't all that many people who have the experience and creativity to do it. So you do your thing (lift, eat, sleep, repeat) and spend your time and energy on other things in life.

Yeah, this.

And forums are dead anyways.

I highly recommend Lyle's Facebook group if you're not already on it. It's much more active with some really smart people to listen to. I would use it more but I don't like being on social media so much and I find the pop-up notifications on my phone after someone comments on my stuff there annoying.

How Many Sets Are Needed to Maximize Muscle Growth? (Ft. Brad Schoenfeld)

https://youtu.be/EspBPvst5Qc

Quote:
When it comes to developing the optimal training program, there’s several variables that need to be considered. One of the most important variables is “how much volume per week” should you do, or “how many sets per muscle group” should you do for hypertrophy. Despite its importance, there actually isn’t much applicable research out there on this topic. Luckily, Dr. Brad Schoenfeld has recently published a meta-analysis on this exact topic and discusses his results with me in this video. We’ll go through how many sets per muscle group per week is best for hypertrophy, and how this differs between various muscle groups and your training experience. By the end of it, you should have a much clearer idea as to how many sets you should do or how much volume you should be performing in your workouts.

Sorry to ask, but you're counting shoulder and Chest as à single group ?
As the basic routine is featuring 3-4xBP + 2-3xohp, if ohp is not hitting chest the maths are wrong for this particular musclegroup

Overhead press does hit chest somewhat. Or if you're worried about it, throw a couple of extra sets of pec dec in.
