I think people should quit worrying about the reps per set, and pay more attention to total volume. I had a guy message me the other day over at bb.com wanting to know if it would be better to change to 3x8 on my beginner routine, i told him flat out all it will do is be a few extra reps with a lower percentage of his 1rm, nothing magical would happen though. People get so caught up in how many reps they are doing, but there is nothing magical about 5reps versus 10, you should be worrying about your total volume in relation to the intensity (I define intensity as % of 1rm not a perceived amount of effort).
