Is there a set guideline for intensity when training for size?

Is there a set guideline for intensity when training for size?

Should you be training at a high intensity every other 4 weeks? 8 weeks?

    Hi Mate,

    The key to building muscle is to get them working hard. I always aim for 100% max effort when lifting, if I am tired (really tired) then i would have a day off. Other wise you are counting reps and sets, nice and easy then going home.

    what do you mean by intensity?

    how "hard" you push yourself? or % of 1 rep max?
