I am naturally much stronger in higher rep sets like 10-12 reps.
For example i can do:
156 lb x 12 bench press which according to the calculator is a 1 RM of 225 lbs
but i can only do 176 lb x 5 which according to the calculator is a 1 RM of 198 lbs
the pattern is the same for other excercises
for example squats i can rep 265 for 12 but can only do 300 for 2-3
It seems my muscles are more endurance built.
Does this mean i should encourage the endurance aspect and train high reps 10-12 where im naturally strong or try to compensate by training low reps where i am weak?
my main goal is size and not 1RM strength although i try to use 1RM as a guide to progress
