    Best rep range for squats to build mass??

    I've heard that for leg or lower body exercises it is better to do high reps but i dont know how high. What rep range is the best to build some mass and muscle for the squat exercise?? 12-15, 15-20, 20-25 or 25+ reps?

    there is no 'best' per say. just different options. if you run a google search on '20 rep squats' you'll get alot of good info. the 20 rep squat program is supposed to be pretty good. check it out for yourself. and im sure a few people will chime in with their thoughts.

    Exactly this, ask 20 people you will get 20 different answers because everyone is different..
    But if your asking me, then the key is variety.
    Personally I switch week by week, meaning one week i'll do lower reps and heavier weight and the other week i'll do lighter weights more reps and more volume. Be consistent and try different things eventually you will find what works best for you.
    Good luck!

    in my opinion there really isnt a set rep range for any individual because i believe everyone should experiment with all types of various rep ranges. with all my muscles not just legs i will use low reps 8-12 and moderate reps 12-15 and sometimes even high reps 15-20. i always switch things up to keep the muscle guessing at all times to it doesnt settle for just one type of stimuli. since i've been doing this i've noticed a huge difference in my actual definition and separation. i've also incorporated some of ERIC BROSERS P/RR/S routines as well. i've tailored them to me obviously and it's worked very well. so experiment and see what works for you.

    Squat properly, squat heavy, vary it up when you stall, and always increase the intensity/workload even if it's only by the smallest amount. There really won't be that much of a difference between 3x5, or 5x5, or 3x10, or anything like that.

    i think 5x5 is pretty swell. that way you can go heavy, but 4 reps feels to quick and 5 feels jussssssst right

    I think if you alternate each week low(3-5) and high rep workouts(8-12) you'll be fine.
    My quads responded very well to low rep training and then got extra stimulation from some higher rep workouts.
    I do both, not just to rip the benefits of both but also give my body some rest from the heavy weights so I can go again.
    I've noticed it on deads also, changing the rep range for a period of time to higher reps my body responded very well.
    Get well soon Robert.

    My legs seem to need a fairly high volume of around 12 reps at as heavy a weight with which I can do them. Before this they didn't seem to grow to be honest

    I think higher reps like 15-25 as your legs are an endurance muscle and respond better to volume but it is very individual man.Try differnet things out and have the measuring tape on hand

    Different for everyone, experiment and figure out what works for you!

    I like a 4-6 range for squats since I do them for strength purposes. For building mass I prefer leg press, which I do at a 12-15 range.
