More reps less weight vs less reps more weight

Can some explain to me if these two have the same effect on the body? In terms of definition, strength or muscle size. For example: 1 rep for 300lbs = 300 3 reps for 100lbs = 300 2 reps for 300lbs = 600 6 reps for 100lbs = 600 At the end of those lifts you have accumulated the same...

Can 5Kg dumbbells increase muscle size?

First my apologies for the newbie question. Can a pair of 5Kg dumbbells be used to increase muscle size in someone that didn't weightlift before and has very limited muscular mass and a slim build? Mostly taking about arms and maybe a bit of shoulders. Thanks in advance for your help.

Working out early in the morning

I normally workout in the evening after work, but a couple times this week I was forced to work out in the morning before work. I think I might like the flexibility that allows. Since I workout in my garage, I could literally roll out of bed and in a few minutes beginning my warmup. But I don't...

Sudden loss in bench strength

how many pull-ups - avg./typical U.S. // fit 50-yr-old man ??

Greetings - I was wondering ... How many pull-ups do you think the average 50-year-old American male can do? And how many pull-ups do you think a fit 50-year-old male should be able to do? In part idle curiosity, but mostly trying to set a reasonable target for myself.
