This is kind of where I was leaning, but thought I'd see about opinions.Working sets of 3-5 reps for squat, deadlift, bench and overhead press. Accessory lifts are often in the 8-12 rep range, but can vary for me.

I've been out of the gym for 2 years and my goal now is more fit and gain size, I used to lift very heavy 5-8 reps and was strong, with dense muscle, but never gained size to match my strength.
I was thinking 8-12 for accessory work as well.
Do you guys typically pyramid weight up or down as you work through sets?
I do not do all the smaller movements and secondary work i used to. Honestly sets and reps are not important at all. Volume is what is important to me. If I do 31,000 lbs for shrugs then i need to stay or increase volume the next week depending on how many things i increased or plan to that week. I add weight, drop weight, drop sets, increase reps as i need. The end goal is efficiency of course, but second to volume.What is your workout looking like for sets and reps?
Do you vary them depending on what muscle group you're working out that day?
Having a hard time with this as I finish up my new workout spreadsheet.
