    to bulk = lift heavy
    to cut = lift heavy + diet + cardio

    Higher reps, moderate weight...try to keep your heart rate up so you can burn calories, don't take too many minutes in between sets also

    example

    4-5 sets per exercise at 10-12 reps per set... Use the amount of weight that on your very last couple reps is difficult...go till failure...

    Be consistent, but don't over train you'll just burn yourself out

    Good luck man

    I would always lift as heavy as possible as our brother scottninpo has stated ... Ummm As most know Im really into working the whole body 2-3 times per week .This has always given great gains .. Now as far as reps go for cuting I would recomend you try a split like this
    Day 1 chest ,shoulders ,tris
    Day 2 legas back and bis
    day3 rest
    start cycle again .
    I would do 10sets of 8-10 on all excersies staying short of failure a rep or two working only one excersie per muscle group .You should always move pretty fast through your workout a maxof 1 min rest from set to set . And around 2 min after completion of total sets .Good luck .CDIZZLE

    i read in your other post that you plan on running tren and prop, take advantage of the strenght gain you'll be getting to get stronger to grow more muscle, more muscle means more fat burning potential, and again watch your diet!!!!!!
