High Reps or Low Reps?

High Reps or Low Reps?
October 16, 2018 Dan Raimondi

It shouldn’t be an either or question. You can do both.

Muscle can be built through a wide variety of rep ranges, whereas strength tends to respond better to higher weight, lower repetition work.

Whatever you do- low reps or high reps- you must try to improve. This could mean picking the same weight and doing more repetitions each session. It could mean using the same repetitions and adding a little more weight.

There are lots of options, but the underlying principle is progress. This is why a training journal is critical to long-term success. You can’t remember everything you do- write it down in a notebook, and then improve something each time you train.
