I am new to body building and from what i understand about it is that doing heavy weights with low reps (6-8) is generally best for gaining muscle mass.
I have also heard that there is a myth that if you do lightweights with high reps it will tone your muscles. however i am not entirely convinced as i have heard many times that the only way to tone your muscles is by losing that fat around them via diet.
So what does lightweights actually do for your physique? Is there much point in doing lightweights or should i just stick to heavy?
