    High reps lower weight

    my current workout consists of higher weight and lower reps, however i have been considering changing that to a lower weight and higher reps, since i would like to start a cutting phase now. however, ive read a couple posts on here saying that this does not help you get cut, and that it would be better to just to stick with the higher weight/lower reps. is that true?

    Chris Mason is my master.....

    American cars are like fat people, sure, they have a lot of power, but they're not built well, and they have all that useless weight, plus they make both make funny noises.

    feel free to aim me, nejar462 im on a lot. Don't know much to warn you dudes, but im good at conversations.

    Belial in reference to Ronnie Coleman, "Some people say he still has blood in his steroid stream, but I doubt it. Gas isn't one of the side effects, but that massive bloated overly muscular freak of nature circus sideshow appearance might be what tips most people off."

    lol.. i used to think that coz thats what the gym jocks used to say in high school.. cutting has to do with your diet.. lower teh calories and go with something like a 40p/40c/20f ratio and maybe do a lil more cardio
