Well, then I guess I'll stick to 1-3 on my olifts, squats, and pulls, while doing 3-5s on the bis and tris for the hyoooge guns, and 3-6s on db rows to get so wide that I can glide on my lats like a flying squirrel.

I think Mark Rippetoe's rep range chart from Starting Strength works pretty well.

5 is a good blend of size and strength. Of course, if you don't eat enough you aren't going to get the size benefits, well at least you won't become heavier.

Well, don't go too crazy with those or else we'll have to start greasing you into your newly-purchased singlet.
