After training consistantly in a gym (mostly free weight and machine based) some months ago I started to train just with my own bodyweight. I read a lot of books, articles, materials etc. but I still have some questions about sets and reps as it seems that every source of information has another viewpoint on it. I think I know all about (or most) progressions and the single excercises but I was wondering how many sets others are doing. My actual routine consists of a full body workout which I do 3 times a week including vertical/horizontal pull and vertical/horizontal push in each session as well as some squat and lunge work. I typically do 3-4 sets of about 10-15 reps. A typical session would be as below:

**Decline Diamond Push Ups 3x 10-15**

Weighted Push Ups 3x 10-15

Pull Ups or Chin Ups 3-4x 7-10

Decline Inverted Rows or other Row Variation 3x 10-15

Dips 3x 10-15

Weighted Lunges or Squats 4x 15

Weighted Push Ups 3x 10-15

Pull Ups or Chin Ups 3-4x 7-10

Decline Inverted Rows or other Row Variation 3x 10-15

Dips 3x 10-15

Weighted Lunges or Squats 4x 15

I have to say that with my current routine I noticed good progress in muscle mass and muscle definition during the last months so I think it's a good routine (for me) but was wondering how you guys determine how many sets and reps per movement pattern you do?

Thanks a lot
