sory, i've had a quick search but to no avail.
i'm sure this has already been covered.
for each set i do on a specific workout, my reps look like this
set 1 - 10 reps relatively light weight.
set 2 - 8 reps lift heavier weight.
set 3 - 6 reps (or lift untill failure of very heavy weight)
after this i move on to another exercise targeting the same body part.
I just wanted to know if it is better to stat with the heavy weight and try for more reps or do it the way i'm doing.
well if lookin to build muscles id do heavier weights on less reps. once you have something to tone and define go for higher reps on lighter weights
What you're doing is fine.

thanks for the reply. I'll start with heavier weights and then finish with lighter.
