Discussion on: What's the right amount of weightlifting volume (for your discipline?)

My goals these days are to just be in shape. When I was younger and playing rugby, I was more about being as strong as I can be because it helped me on the field when tackling, running through people or taking a hit.

Having said that, heavy squats will always be my favourite exercise. 😎

Lately, I've been doing HIIT training so things are constantly changing in terms of exercises, but the constants are tonnes of sets and short rest times. In terms of reps, it's typically get as many in as you can within 30-45 seconds depending on the type of exercise.
