great links there ..

sorry to clarify, work out your 1RM and then figure out the appropriate rate in the 5-6 rep range ?

eg.

80kg 1RM = 6 reps of 66kg ?

Yes mate you calculated it right.

But ultimately its your choice how many sets and reps you do. If you did 3 sets at 66kg with 6 reps, its most likely the 4th set would begin to wear down reps to less, so you could do 10 to 20 second rest pauses when the going gets tough toward the end of the last set.

The same could apply to sets with higher reps, say 10 or 12. DA
