Less reps, more weight.
between 8 and 12 reps...with a weight of course that causes you failure to the number of reps you choose for each set...
You do fewer reps with more weight to make your muscles look larger. You do more reps with less weight to increase your strength. What is your goal?
yes. low weight high reps gives you a tone look. high weight and low reps gives you big stocky muscles.
Generally a good workout weight is the weight at which you can do at least 8 reps but no more than 12 reps. If you are able to do more reps, try going heavier. If you are training for strength, use fewer than 8 reps but go heavier on the weight.
more weight less reps more weight less reps
In this case it's the amount of weight, but in reality it's neither. It only matters HOW you lift it, as in posture, stance, etc... You could have any amount of weight on there, just do it correctly.
no lifting less weight w/more reps make you cut as in muscle definition heavy weight and shorter reps make you stronger 3-4 sets and 6-8 reps
It depends on your desired results. For getting stronger and bigger, use a lot of weight and low repetition. I would recommend 2-3 sets of 8 reps with however much weight you can handle for that amount. For getting more toned and gaining endurance, use low weight and high reps. I would recommend 3-4 sets of 12-15 reps.
low reps, high weight
When beginning an exercise program, one should start with 3 sets of 10 reps with a certain weight amount. The weight should be gradually increased so the muscles do not become accustomed to the amount of weight being used. After a period of time, the sets and repetitions can be increased to improve the results of the exercise.
More weight, less reps= more strength Less weight, more reps= more bulk (body builders) Genetics and Diet also helps.
