    4-6 and build consistency at a lower weight then increase with deloads

    you can push yourself on days doing 3-4 but i would not max out unless it is actual competition day.

    I stick with low reps high weight (although not more than 90% of my 1rm), for a large number of sets.

    4-8 is what I usually do. I definitely wouldnít max out too often as Steve said

    Look to add high weight low reps for strength and try to move the weight quick.
