Everyone is individual. We all respond differently to different types of trainging. I think that figuring out how to make your training as intense as possible is the key. if you can do this with HIT, using few sets, and not get hurt, then more power to you. If you can't handle getting to EXTREME intensity with few sets, then sure, maybe you need more sets. I like to make sure I get some all out high intensity sets in. Sets where I am giving 100%. When I say 100%, I'm talking about an insensity I have crafted over years and years. Its taken that long to lrean what I am really capible of. Look at Dorian. mike mentzer. Look at the leg work Platz did. It can take a lifetime to really craft that intensity. But I also work just as hard in the higher rep range. Build the fast and slow twitch fibers. Build them all.
Yes you can handle more volume on gear, but the point Im making here, is that adding volume can be a mistake. People blindly add sets that might only be limiting recovery. Make sure that you destroy the muscle as effectively as possible, then get out of the gym and grow.
