Training Volume Survey ?

I just wanted an idea of what the majority of you lot do volume wise. i'm not looking for advice as I am quite confident that what I do training wise works very well. I am however interested to see what everyone finds suits them. I know it varies from body part to body part but say on average, how many sets do you do for a given body part on a weekly basis? As in a single work out??

    legs/chest/back: 4 exercises, 3-4 sets each = 15sets max

    arms: one exercise, 3-4 sets max

    abs: multiple exercises, 2-3 sets

    I'm gona post on the poll, but to be honest the volume don't mean much without knowing the load and reps used, but I see were you coming from. Sets x reps x mean/median%1RM would be a more usefull tool too assess weekly volume.

    Further as a powerlifter it's a bit tough to organise by body parts, and volume varies from lift to lift and at different parts of a cycle.

    Rough average 6-10 working sets per week per comp lift. This is exluding assistance lifts. Adding them takes it up to about 10-15 training sets per comp lift per week, spread over 3 sessions. Add in extra sessions and you getting close to 20 training sets on varying lifts of varying intenisty (50-90% 1RM) per comp lift per week. Again the fact that shoulder pressing is an assistance lift to my bench rather than 'shoulder's complicates things.

    I voted for 10-15 but really 3-15 would be a better range. Hell, biceps would be 0.5 per week probably!
