    More Reps, Less Weight= Bigger Muscles?

    So, I've been researching this all over the internet, and I can't find the answer to this question anywhere. Some people say that heavier lifting gives you bigger muscles and some say less weight, and more reps will give you more mass. Does this all come down to your genetic makeup (and diet)?

    Progressively heavier weight with the rep range and intensity of your choosing gives you muscle.

    First get strong then you can worry about all the other ****. About 5 reps with heavy weights.

    depends on how less and how heavy youre talking about

    you doing 100 reps on a 5lb dumbell curl is different from doing 14 reps of like a 30 lb curl


    and 5 rep of a 230 bench vs a 12 reps of a 200 bench

    it just varies man

    No, that is the worst way to put on mass. Heavy weight with low reps is what most people bulk on. Doing low weight with high reps will only build muscle endurance, not muscle mass. Eat big, lift big, get big.

    Lol... No.
    Look me in the eye. It's okay if you are scared, so am I, but we are scared for different reasons. I am scared of what I willn't become, you are scared of what I could become. Look at me! I will not let myself end where I started, I will not let myself finish where I begin. I know what is within me, even if you can't see it yet. Look me in the eyes, I have something more important than courage, I have patience. I will become what I know I am.

    The commonly accepted weight ranges are:
    2-6 - Movements should be explosive, good for developing strength
    8-12 - Slow and controlled with a focus on the negative, good for muscular hypertrophy
    12+ - steady tempo, good for developing endurance

    Now just because this is what results general come in a range doesn't mean that incorporating and manipulating different rep ranges with different speeds of movement wont yield different results. Genetics play a factor in everything to, as you train over the years you'll find out what works and what doesn't work for you.

    In terms of adding mass and getting big, It all comes down to the time under tension your muscles endure during your working sets, How you eat, and how you sleep. No other ways around it

    So you're telling me that if you eat 4000 calories a day, then go to the gym and do 20 reps of low weight, you will gain good muscle mass? No. You would gain nothing but fat from you're diet.

    Yeah, you are wrong. Thanks for the broscience.
    Didn't read now, will read later tho.

    Exactly why am i wrong? The purpose of different weight ranges ( such as pyramid sets) is to stimulate ALL types or muscle fibers, whether they're slow, or fast twitching, since most muscles are a mixture of both (even if you have a dominant one ) both fibers will be stimulated :/

    WOW GUYS. No one in this thread has any reading comprehension. Overload. OVERLOAD. If you can go to the gym and bench 45lbs for 50 reps, and add weight every workout until you are benching 900lbs for 50 reps, guess what, YOU ARE A SWOLE MOTHERFUCKER. Realistically, that doesn't happen, so we utilize the lower rep ranges.

    You can not target slow twitch fibers, since no matter what rep range you do, slow twitch will be produced.
    Look me in the eye. It's okay if you are scared, so am I, but we are scared for different reasons. I am scared of what I willn't become, you are scared of what I could become. Look at me! I will not let myself end where I started, I will not let myself finish where I begin. I know what is within me, even if you can't see it yet. Look me in the eyes, I have something more important than courage, I have patience. I will become what I know I am.

    Technically it's progressive resistance. Muscle gain isn't soley limited to linear progression.

    Nonetheless, for old time's sake - tell Bitter if anyone negs you for this.

    Layne Norton:

    "The notion that high rep ranges stimulate slow twitch fibers & low reps stimulate fast twitch fibers. The fact of the matter is that while high reps do stimulate slow twitch fibers, SO DO LOW REPS with heavy weights. You see your fiber types are recruited in order of need: slow twitch first, then intermediate, then fast. So as you can see, if you are lifting heavy loads for low reps you have already maximally stimulated your slow twitch fibers"

    progressive overload = progressive resistance? Nevertheless, you can't have overload without progressing.

    People spend to much time worrying about things such as rep ranges when they should be focusing on more important things like progressive overload and a caloric surplus.

    sorry but wrong,
    1-5 reps : strong
    6-8 reps : strong and some mass
    8-12 reps : mass mainly
    12-15 reps : mass + endurance
    15+ : endurance mainly

    Ohplsgo. No matter what rep range you do, you will gain mass if you eat in a surplus/use progressive overload. No matter what.
