3 sets, 5-8 heavy reps
Everyone is different though. Different fast and slow twitch fibers. What works best for ne probably wont be for you

Id say 5 sets in the 5-12 range. Work up, hit it heavy, drop set down some.
Exercise--------1RM--------@ Weight
Flat Bench-----395lbs x2---198lbs
Deadlift---------600lbs---- --210lbs
Pull-ups---------52
Pushups--------2020 in 1 set, non-stop, no knees on ground etc, in 2H 8 mins.

If you know what works for you then stick to that. For example I keep reps low on working deadlift or rack pull sets. But I might hit 20 reps on incline press or face pulls when targeting my side delts more.

week 1: 8 rep range

week 2: 10 rep range

week 3: 6 rep range

week 4: 15-20 rep range

week 5: 3-5 rep range

I do 4-5 sets of each exercise.

then I repeat.its my usual workout rep split depending on my goals. no matter what rep range I'm going for, squat, bench, and back I always do at LEAST one 8 rep set. also usually do this on something like a 20 wk cycle. on  a 4 week cycle of something like dbol i'd do 3-8 rep range. But on dbol I'm only concerned about gaining strength.

Rich Piana is strong advocate saying when on gear, light weight hig reps...............but your really not on the gear per Se.

Either way IMO on just your run, push the weights to fatigue with progressive overload. But don't go too hard, watch those ligaments etc if the compound give you a kick in strength.
