    am sure he didn't mean to offend ya LG... either way, just felt the need to again express that if I want high rep sets I'm supersetting my big weight, "running the rack", or things of that nature, not ****in around with ***** weight to the 100th power... might as well run a god damn marathon... not gonna make an entire workout out of warm-up sets, no way no how

    I dont need to use useless internet-based studies to get my point across

     

    if I use an article in my writings, I will say that I did.  I'm not YJ
    No Lifeguard, I admire your intellect. I just meant that even though it is your own theory, based on scientific evidence you have learned, it is just that—theory. Based on science, what you said makes sense. In reality, it fails to produce the desired result—bigger muscles. I sometimes reduce weight to about 60-75% of norm and blast out 5 sets of 20 reps to shock the muscles and break through a sticking point. But only for a few workouts, and anything over 20 has proven detrimental. More soreness; no additional gains.

    peace,

    Yes, I agree that doing 100 rep sets in every workout is stupid. But it can be used as a new training stimulus every once so often just to beat your muscles up a little bit

    The 50 rep sets where not to increase muscle size but to get the vascularity to pop more...

    lifting weight is not aimed at increasing muscle size? did I understand that correctly? sounded an awful lot like you said "just get a good pump dude".

    Vascularity is much more dependant on bodyfat levels, water retention, and GENETICS, then overall lifting methods. You can help it along a bit, but you have to HAVE the muscle before it can get vascular. Also, tren, 1-test or EQ work much better

    High rep sets increase capillary density. Therefore, increased pump.
