Poll: Correct number of reps for muscle size?

Correct number of reps purely for muscle size?

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. You just need to shock your body. I was doin 20, 18, 18, 15 format for a lot of exercises and seeing great gains...now I'm moving to 6, 5,4, 3,2 format for compound exercises.


  2. I like the 6-8 range for mass and power. Higher then that like 10 + is good for tone.

    It is for some people you are right, but lots of people I know and a lot of bodybuilders use high reps for mass building typically in the 12-15 reps range. But only doing low or high reps will not consistantly help you build mass. Your body needs a change up every 3-5 weeks.

  4. i read 1-6 for strength 7-11 for size and 12&up for endurance

    I'm with you on that one. You have to change it up. That way your muscles won't get use to the same ol.

    Great point.
    I do remember reading that somewhere.
