    14 sets per muscle group. Is this too many?

    For example biceps.....

    4 sets of 12 ( standup Dumbbell alternating curl.)
    4 sets of 21's
    4 Sets of 8 (Heavier weight sit down dumbbell exercise. That's why I lowered my reps)
    2 sets of 50 pound barbell till failure.

    If they are not smoked after 9 sets with good form and decent weight then you need to rethink your routine.

    I really see no problem with 14 sets. Major muscle groups I usually do 16-24 and usually around 12 for small muscle groups (arms)
    Anything said by exerciseordie is for educational purposes only! PERIOD!!!! Don't do illegal shit.

    I do rule of thumb 4x10 for each exercise with a min of 5 different exercises per muscle group.

    Exercise selection is more important than number of sets.

    Example:
    Workout A - 5 sets of parallel squats, 5 sets of hamstring curls, and 4 sets of leg extensions.
    Workout B - 4 sets of ATG squats, 3 sets of stiff-legged dead lifts, and 3 sets of leg press.

    Workout B will give you much better results even though it has 4 less sets. I would focus more on incorporating effective exercises and less on doing some exact number of sets per muscle group.

    Do as much as it takes or as little sets you can get away with. Some days it takes more. Some days you just won't get there cause of distractions or diet / water consideration, rest, stress...etc

    i can usually tell if it's not going well by the second exercise. And i will ditch the whole gd thing and do calfs, abs and rear delts. I can always get pump there. or find a milf to eye molest while in doing some stair master. Sometimes I get on the stair master for like 10-15 mins and i get back in the mode and return to by workout.

    I honestly just don't see the point in doing 4 sets of dumbell curls and 4 sets of 21s. Are you just eye fucking yourself in the mirror or what???

    Negged again.

    Oh yeah? 60 pounds motherfucker. I doubt you can do 21s with 60 pounds. You would give up.

    Ive done upwards of 25 sets on certain things. I know that sounds retarded but Stims+mania+Tren is a helluva driving force.

    ummm, nowadays i stick to 8-12 sets in my 65-90% range. Warming up and finishing off with 50% range stuff, in the high 20's or even 30 rep range. Variety is the key for me. I get bored as fuck if i dont switch things around now and then.
