    What does 10-15 reps mean

    What does it mean when a routine says :

    bench press: 3 sets x 10-15 reps


    I am confused about the rep part. 10-15 reps, does it mean you have to hit 10,11,12,13,14 or 15 reps? Kind of confused.

    Same with 10-12 reps. How do you know when to hit that rep? How about progression. I have always used a steady number. As soon as I get there, I increase the weight.

    Please help

    It could mean many things really.

    But I'm fairly certain it means once you can do 15 reps with your weight, you increase it.

    It means you can choose a rep number you like between the interval 10 - 15.

    Pick a weight you can do ten reps with, aim for 15 reps.
    So you're on the internet for good advice, here's some good advice: have a good laugh once in a while. And never tear your bicep!

    628 / 661 LBS DL
    529 / 600 LBS SQ
    242 / 300 LBS BP

    I don't go to the gym anymore so above stats are useless.

    Only do weighted calastentics in the comfort of my own home!
