    I stay around the 5 rep range for compounds and around 8 for iso's. I have
    went from 225 to ~190 and kept all my strength. This seems to work for me (most important statement).

    Thanks everyone im trying to drop 8 pounds. I used to be so ripped that i'd lose weight so easily whenever i wanted too. I do cardio for an hour 4.2 speed walking on 15.0 incline or mix it up with 30 mins of running at 6.0 on 5.5 incline. I noticed i've been doing lighter weight more reps.. im 158 pounds trying to get to 150 and im 17. So i guess the best thing to do is to lift heavier with a good amount of reps? and i guess i lost my touch of knowledge on losing weight lol. Im in good shape just dont have my abs anymore with a little layer of fat on my stomach.

    ^^^This is what I do as well. I used to do 4-6 working sets but found as I cut I was having problems recovering so I dropped my working sets to 3 and have been increasing strength ever since.
