Low Reps or High Reps: What’s Better? – Episode 337

Posted by Jason Ferruggia

In this episode we will address the question of reps. Should you do high reps or low reps? What’s better for strength gains, muscle growth, and fat loss?

Does it vary from person to person?

How many reps should you do as a beginner? Intermediate? Advanced lifter? 

Is age a consideration?

What about per muscle group? 

Should you train the calves with the same rep range as the shoulders? 

What if some muscles are predominantly fast twitch, and others are slow twitch? Does that change the recommendation?

What load and rep range produces the best results? 

And should you take your sets to failure ?

We cover all that and more.
