Default Reps and Gains?

To get good gains of mass and strenght should I do my three sets like this...10/8/6 or 8/6/4(I add on weight for every set) ?? From what I read and seen the 8/6/4 would be better but wanted to see what everyone else prefers.

I'm sorry if you already posted this on another thread but. what are your stats. just curious.
and as for your question. I would say experiment. I do well with both.. but I do find that with 8/6/4 I have more strength gains..so it would depend on what your goals are, build more or lift more... I say see what your 1RM is for the major lifts, BB shoulder press, Squats, Deads, BB bench, BB curls and measure you body like how big are your arms, thighs, etc. then do the 10/8/6 for about 2-4 weeks. after your done, test out your 1RM and see how much, percent wise, you made progress with, and do the same the measuring. and then move to 8/6/4 for the next 2-4 weeks and do the same thing.. which ever is the best for YOU.. is what you should do...
I keep an Excel spread on everything.. (mostly because I'm a computer and math nerd).. but I have pretty good records... good luck

What you want to do and what happens are 2 different things. I will go for my max but I may put on a weight and hit 10 reps on day and maybe only 6 another day depending on how I feel. Then I work my way up. Just adjust. You may need to do extra sets sometimes and sometimes you don't. Just push hard and get a good workout. If your crawling out of the gym puking you did good.
