I think that's what I was confused about.

I can't say that I have used that scheme (typically I use 3x 12, or sometimes 4x 12, depending on the exercise)

Thanks Babs!
ok ok to make things clearer:

I am surprised u donīt know about these "guidelines" (donīt mean it offensive, i donīt know everything too).
IMHO this "info" is quite old and explains the popular 5x10 5x5 etc schemes.

ok so first here is the lnfo by waterbury which is good IMHO:

T NATION | Set/Rep Bible

And its per BODY PART. NOT exercise and NOT whole workout.
Of course u can consider overlapping bodyparts and make less volume for example for shoulders.

In my case one workout is:

Squat: 3x8
bench press 3x8
Row overhand grip 3x8
military press 3x8
lat pulldown 3x8
Hyperextensions
crunch

If someone has issues with shoulders and too much volume it would probably be:

deadlift 3x8
Lunges:3x8 per leg
dips 3x8
chin up 3x8
--------------------

and thats what i meant with my older post. If the 3x8 gets too light there are two ways: increase intensity or volume.
I am on the first side, thats why 3x8 will get probably 5x5 after some time.
Same volume, more weight.

got me now?
