6-8 reps or less, is usually associated with strength/mass training.. You'll see better strength and size results if you train with HEAVY WEIGHT and less reps..

i read an article about German Volume Training that suggests doing 10 reps and 3 sets to build muscle and gain...i tried it and it worked, however i did lose some strength. if strength isnt of any concern you might want to read up on GVT at www.******.com
no i dont advertise for that site i just get a lot of good up to date infor from it

****** is got good info
Chris Aceto championship BB says 6-12 rep range every set to failure to build. u def loose ur strength but boy ur sore.
most power lifters lift hard but dont alter body image much. just strength this is why i feel 6-12 reprange will bring muscles out and stress the 2b fibers to build and look at cutting edge

I've read 6-8. It's easier to find your failure point within 3 reps.

yea thats what i though ill try the low rep count cause ive done higher reps and it worked but not as great as i would loved to. Like for my pecs it works wonders 10-12 reps gets it pumped and growing as for my arms it seems to over work em all the time. So i was thinking about trying just 6, 4 ,4, 2 reps and see how that will work. If any suggestions are avaible ill take em
