About WBB II
I'm kind of confused...WBB II says it's created to target the fast twitch fibers for hypertrophy which means getting big or building mass right? Then why are the reps in the higher range? 9-11? Is this higher reps with heavier weights? No 75% rep maximum or whatever it is?
Am i making any sense at all? I have used WBB I and eaten as much as I can in the last 6+ months and have gone from around 155lbs to currently 191lbs, i'm 6ft. I've always been super skinny and gaining weight/muscle/fat is really nice!
But i'm wondering about the higher reps with WBB II. I want to keep getting bigger, should I stick to the 6-8 rep range? Or am i overthinking everything and just do what WBB II says? lol
sorry for the rambling post
You're overthinking. It's good to switch it up once in a while. You can try the new workout and if you feel it's not for you after a few months, then move on to something else. Just keep eating and you'll grow. Besides 9-11 reps are right in the hypertrophy range.
9-11 is hypertrophy? i thought something like 5-6 was? now i'm really confused

Reps anywhere from 1-20 can be useful for hypertrophy. 5-12 is probably the ideal range to stay in most of the time.
