High reps or low reps for size

Posted by DogFaceBoy

Hello everyone!!

I'm new to this forum, which is really great.

Okay, now for my question.

Some say you should do 6-8 reps with heavy weight.

Some say you should do 12-15 reps with less weight for increasing the muscle size.

What do you guys suggest?...

I like the idea of alternating both - what is the best period of time to change between both ways (weeks).

Thanks alot.

8-10 is optimum for size. 12-15 for cutting and defining. This coming from a 16 year veteran who has tried both and seen such results.

I couldn't agree less with BigboyNasty, doing 12 to 15 reps will not give you defination, that comes from diet and cardio, not from doing a few extra reps per set.

The truth is for maximum size you should do both high, medium and low reps, you can alternate or you can take each exercise and do 25 to 30 reps, add weight and do 10 to 15 reps then add more weight and do 6 to 8 reps.

And I have been training for over 30 years!
