Just curious as to what rep and set range most of you body builders here train with ?
- Compound lifts like; Bench press, Deadlifts, Squats, Rows, etc...is the 5rep scheme still the norm for most muscle growth in getting bigger ? So like a 1x10, and 4x5 good for those ?
- Isolated workouts like; tricep press downs, curls, dumbbell laterals, etc...always go a bit higher reps, not 5x5 but more like 2x10, 2x8, 1x6 rep scheme ?
Would like everyone's opinion on this please
Spot-on, although it is always good to vary things up.
But yes in general, compound movements require less reps.
You don't think I should try a H.I.T rep scheme for every single exercise and be like 1x20, 1x12, 1x10, 1x8, 1xF ? That seems to high reps to me, I always thought lift heavy and less reps builds muscle as opposed to lighter and higher reps ?
