Metering with two lights or more

Hi everyone

I'm thinking about adding a second or third light to my studio portraits and I'm not sure what's the best practice as far as metering. If I am going for a 2:1 ratio my key meters at  F8 and then when I take my meter reading for my fill, should I turn off my key light to meter for the fill or should I meter with both lights firing and meter to 5.6 on the fill side?

Thanks
