    When doing high weight, low rep..... Dont feel like i've done anything?

    Hey,


    Well I do strength and mass training, and low weight, high rep is supposed to increase strength, im fine with that, But when doing the mass training, i do high weight, low rep like you should, the average is say...

    3 sets - 8 reps for each exercise, and people do like 3 exercises per body part.

    So when working arms, thats only about 70 reps per workout with breaks in-between, and once i've done this, the problem is i dont feel like i've properly worked out, my arms dont ache as much and it takes next to no time, so it just feels like an incomplete workout

    Does anyone else have this problem?

    soreness is not an indicator of muscle growth.

    well..

    I am in the same boat that your in. I have doing high weight and low reps and am very sore from it. Just make sure your doing enough weight....that si very important. another thing important for this type of training is to have a spotter with you.. Having someone there pushing you is the greatest help to hit those big weights.

    I do 5 sets of 5. I am doing about i think 75% of my max or something like that but on the last 2 sets you should be struggling pretty hard.

    also, make sure on your 7th or 8th rep is to failure on every set

    u are actually doing more yet ur not getting the pump. it takes more muscles to push up heavy weight then light weight. doing heavy weight u are using your slow twitch muscles and fast twitch muscles.

    when building strength, you are also building muscle.

    if you are forcing reps then you are pushing yourself, even if you feel like you havent worked the muscles and they are sore.
