What are you guys talking about!! The best set-rep range is 1. 1 set and 1 rep!

I second that. But it's only true if your goal is maximum strength (contractile-mass). If you want maximum size you need more volume. Not necessarily a higher rep range but more singles. Something like 10-15x1x85% with short rests between singles ~5 seconds. Energy expenditure (glycogen depletion) will be much higher an provide much greater size gains than the 1x1.
