Ive noticed that alot of guys posting here have something like: "bench press:225 x 3" or "200x1" etc in their sigs. Now my question is do you actually only do a few sets with 1-3 reps?
Im relatively new to lifting (seriously lifting for a month now), and Ive been doing 3 sets of 8 reps every time i give the incl. bench a go.
BTW, if its of any relevance my goals would be gaining size and strength but am I on the right way with my 24 reps of relatively low weight?
EDIT: also while im asking questions here, a few "experts" in my gym keep advising me that pull-ups shouldnt be done by the newbies who havent been lifting for at least a month or 4-5..? Is there any truth to this or are they just talking out of their hole basically?
