Those charts amuse me. Note that most beginners in gyms are given 10-12 rep sets to do. So the beginners will put on size? That explains the enormous guns of the chicks struggling to do sets of 8-12 on the chest press machine.

As I said here, since most lifters are beginners, for almost everyone in the gym, this chart is bollocks. Whatever you do, do more than you did before - more weight, or if you can't do more weight then more reps, if you can't do more reps then more sets. Stay somewhere in a sane range of more than 3 and less than 20, otherwise do what you like.
