    Concerning a few of the recent study results I've read, it seems pure volume (less weight) is just as effective for hypertrophy as the 'typical' lifting programs....
    So I'm doubling up my sets.... 3 and 4...and still doing upper/lower splits with maybe 80 to 90% my 10rm

    Well your volume across the spectrum of intensity will, by nature of progression, grow over time as you get stronger. So increasing volume is good way to force progress but don't neglect intensity. Staying in one range of intensity will hem in your progress long term. Also focusing only on volume only will force you to drive deeper and deeper into volume to continue to progress, which will create (over time) an unreasonable time commitment or frequency requirement to your training.

    Alternating has proven best for me.
