The rep range for these exercises are moderate-high (6-12) as my main goal is to increase as much muscle mass as possible.

I see better results with 5 day split compared to 4/6 day split. Started out with 3 day split, then 4, 5, & 6. 3 & 4 seems too little, while 6 is too much.

Workout starts from Monday - Friday. Weekends are off because I want to spend time socialising with family & friends.

Average workout last for an hour or so.

Not a fan of cardio, so I will try reducing my rest interval to work my heart rate up.
