slow twitch muscle fibers
does anybody incorperate working your slow twitch muscle fibers since the average person's muscle content is about 50/50, even tho fast twitch fibers are able to hypertrophy easier and bigger than slow, however they still make up 50% of most muscle? so anybody hit these fibers hard?

Slow= endurance=higher reps

i know that but there are different ranges! for example ....
some use a range of 15-20 reps, others use 12-15 just wondering what ranges the guys on here use... i know the ranges from slow twitch bro im just curious as to your thoughts on this...

the range is this
anything past that is a waste of time unless you're doing some major drop set wich I think is a staple of any workout
I usually do on my last set 10-12 reps(failure) followed immediately by 12 reps(lower wieght to failure) hope this helps!

I like to use all ranges form high to low 15- 6, is the rang I use, this way I get the benefit of high and low (fast and slow twich) muscle fiber stimulation,

im thinking about using a pyramid method, 15(slow twitch), 10(hypertrophy), 5(strength which will eventually create hypertrophy)... what do you guys think about this?

What exercises are you referring to?

I use anywhere from 4-6 reps(heavy sets) up to 20 reps(burnout). I've used the pyramid before also, works pretty good. After warmup sets, I had sets of 10, 8, 6,4, then a burnout at end. Have also done the pyramid the other way and gone up reps.

For all my exercises 1 set consists of 12-4-8-10-25 reps. The 12-4-8-10 reps all go at 90° flexion, The 25 is full range of motion to complete the set.
