15, 12, 10, 8, 8
Since reading this forum I have done 5 sets of 5 reps and now do 3 sets of 8 reps.
I know this forum advocates a less is more approach to weight training but I see a lot of people in my gym doing a lot of reps.
The main guys in my gym do a lot of exercises per muscle group and they are the biggest people in there.
Are they really wasting their time and overtraining?
For a shoulder day they do an incline shoulder press, side laterals, front laterals all at 15, 12, 10, 8, 8.
For chest they will do bench press, some kind of standing press thing and then an incline press on the smith machine with a really small range of motion but doing it really quick and for many reps.
They do other moves too, this is just what I have observed them doing.
I guess I am just trying to work out what is best - more or less?
also the dude that owns the gym and was massive in his day said that low reps are ok but your body gets used to them so you have to do loads
