The problem with low volume is that it usually equals going to failure.

When you're going to failure, the CNS will get fried, and will need a long time to recover, up to 3 weeks if you've really done an extreme workout with negs, forced reps, drop sets et al. Problem is that the muscle doesn't need to recover as long.

If you instead avoid failure, your recovery time shouldn't be dictated by the CNS, but by the muscle recovery time, which is shorter.

I am no fan of high volume workouts like those recommended by FLEX, or where you're doing 12 sets for biceps in a workout.

I like stuff like HST or Max-OT. Those protocols have moderate volumes. Max-OT however, does make you go fairly close to failure, "near-failure".

These days I train strictly for powerlifting, during the offseason next summer I'll probably do the HST for 4 weeks.

Master the art of different kind of training-styles.

Every program has his advantages over the other. So change once in a while.

if you're a beginner start with somewhere in between, maybe 3 sets of 10 reps on each exercise.
over time you get plenty of time to experiment and im sure you can build plenty of muscle whatever number of reps or volume you choose.
