I was browsing another thread and there was the poll do you lift for strength or asthetics ? People said both. Then there was another thread where someone stated something along the lines of '50 reps with 25lbs dumbbells' and does not get stronger, but just has large muscles.
I was always under the impression in order to get bigger muscles, you lift heavier weights progressively which is a result of an increase in strength. This has been my expierence anyway.
Is there a possible way to completely ignore strength and manipulate workout exercises in such a fashion (dropsets, supersets, reps variation, etc) so you can actually build muscle without increasing strength (too much that is).
For example having big arms while only using max 30lb dumbbells if not lighter while constantly manipulating workouts ? From my own expierence, it seems to cap off at a certain point where the weight must be heavier in order to induce muscle growth. (Not just arms exclusively, but all muscles in general).
