    Workout routine dilemma


    I'm currently on a workout routine where I go 4 heavy sets where im only able to perform 4-6 reps each set.but I would like to know if going a little lighter and going for extra reps to failure is more effective in building mass and muscle?I'm not sure which one I should follow with.

    the 4-6 rep to failure range will drive faster strength gains. higher rep ranges will lead to more mass growth to some extent, but at the same time lower strength gains. Overall its best to vary between the two, flipping with doing 4 weeks of the low rep range followed by 6-8 of higher, then 4 of the low again.
