    For developing a balanced, big strong set of legs, switch between both. I personally hate doing higher reps for legs, but every one in a while its beneficial to change things up.

    Studies have found that very high rep workouts attain the same hypertrophy as low rep heavy weight ones. Im not sure about this. I think they did it on quad extensions with like sets of 50,75, and 100 reps. I know i read this somewhere but dont know the validity of it.

    That study only examined protein synthesis, NOT protein accretion or markers of body comp. Still neat though.

    neither. it's about finding that middle ground. i go heavy on legs though.

    i highly suggest you take a look at Llayne Norton's PHAT routine. gives you the best of both worlds
    Never forget what you once were.
