When I was in my late teens I was very much into powerlifting and bodybuilding. My coaches stressed to me that to build muscle you need to lift heavy weight with low reps (4-6 reps) and to tone your muscles (shape them) you need to lift lighter weight with high reps (10-12 reps). So, I would train each body part twice per week (once heavy then once light). I got great results using this formula as it helped me get stronger and well defined.

It depends on your desired results. For getting stronger and bigger, use a lot of weight and low repetition. I would recommend 2-3 sets of 8 reps with however much weight you can handle for that amount. For getting more toned and gaining endurance, use low weight and high reps. I would recommend 3-4 sets of 12-15 reps.
