    workout help

    usually i try to lift the heaviest i can for about 10 reps.. lets say im struggling to just get 6 or 7.. should i lower the weight and keep going for 10 reps to get a real burn.. or just continue with that heavy weight and only achieve like 6 reps

    see i think if i do the heavy weight for only 6 reps.. that maybe next week i can do it for 7 reps, and so on.. on the other hand if i dropped the weight, id get a good burn but.. never really increase my strength?

    Bro you dont necessarily have to adhere to the ten rep game. depending on your goals, size? stregth? for strength and mass id say your ok with 6-8 for power 4-6. try experimenting and see what works best for you

    I agree as long as your warming up properly going down to 6 reps is fine. I like to always lift as heavy as i can so my last set usally falls between 5-6 reps.
