    Unless there is a physical problem/limitation, your upper body will also respond to heavy squats, and will be better able to handle heavier upper body work. Many years ago when I was younger and not busted up, my upper body became much more massive (in a manner of speaking, ha ha ha) when I became serious about squats. Of course, we all know the problem with squats is they are not much fun to do.

  10. You're right. Slowly but surely for me...I may start doing more sets for upper body.

    I suggest doing less, correctly and with intensity, than more.
     
  16. I'm only doing 3 sets for upper body work. Not enough if I miss even one workout.

    We'll see.

    3 sets each of how many exercises? Remember that hypertrophy is like developing a callus: too much irritation and you cause a blister; too little you cause nothing; just right and the skin will thicken to protect itself.
