    More weight or More reps

    Hey guys, I'm new here as you can see. I've been working out for about 6 months and have been following the forums on here for a little while before creating my account, so I'm not a complete noob. I was just wondering what would be the best for increasing my strength; more weight and less reps or less weight and more reps. Thoughts?

    Clearly you haven't been following the forums


    in general

    1-5 = strength
    6 - 12 = size
    13 + = endurance

    95% of 1MR is just strength

    80- 95 is speed and strength, below is just speed..or something, idk


    but basically 5 reps or lower per set is good for strength. Make sure you add weight every session as long as you can eat eat eat
