ok ive been on rippetoes for about 6 months and can def. tell of muscle gain. now im getting pretty sick of having to do the same rippetoe routine over and over. i was wondering if i could use one month to tone instead of try and gain mass. for example lighter weights with 3 sets of 10 or 8. plus if i tone will it decrease my muscle mass meaning will i lose my gains from more reps on a little lighter weight?
