Intensity Vs Volume

Tips for guys who have trouble putting on muscle by jason ferruggia

To train effectively and safely, you need to understand the difference between lifts that work through "intensity" and those that require "volume." The squat, deadlift, and bench press are all intensity exercises. They require exacting form. If you do too many sets or reps (more than five per set), you risk injury and overtraining. Alternatively, dips, pushups, and chinups are volume exercises. It's safe and more effective to perform lots of reps on them. Save the heavy lifting for the barbell exercises, and finish your workouts with easier exercises where you can do the most reps.
