So my question to you is...if you have to choose, which workout would you do for muscle building...

A) One ball-busting HIT set per bodypart, with whatever high intensity tricks you want to add to that set (rest-pause, slow negatives, drop sets, whatever)

B) 30 grind 'em out mindless volume sets of moderate intensity.
A without a doubt. I would start to loose form on my reps if I did 30 of them per workout. I also like to challenge myself and think that going high intensity to faliure is more effective.
