    both my arms and legs respond well to higher reps, but generally i keep it 8-12... but since that encompasses 2 choices i voted 8-10

      I shoot for 10-12. But on my last sets I'm around 8.

        Has to vary constantly.If it doesn't,you gains will be compromised.There's no one way to do anything.

          Variety of rep range is best.

              Cycles with 3 steps; 4-6, 8-10, 12-15. 21s are a great finish for variety.

                I incorporate all. Get the best results currently gettin in the full spectrum of ranges. Only thing I dont do now is one rep maxes, since I feel those dont really build size. Fun but easier to get injured. Legs I always go higher reps with very heavy weight. Up to 50 reps with 800lbs on leg press for example. Leg extentions with the stack for 50 reps. For years I stuck to 12-15 rep range for most of my sets. It worked for some years, but ultimately I adapted and got the most out of the full variety.

                KILL THAT SHIT!!

                  ye i get a really good pump from 12 - 15 reps, so i think i might start varing it a bit more, since i train everything twice per week i might do a 8-10 and a 12 - 15 for each a week and see how that goes

                      We like to switch it up every couple of weeks.

                      6-8, 8-10 then a week of 3-5 and so on

                            Great, I will get a gold star to put on your forehead since you are the first person ever in the history of the world to think of that.

                              I generally stay with 1-5 but sometimes I will do up to 50 reps for things like shrugs or calf raises. My compound movements are low rep for 4 weeks then medium rep for 2 weeks. I lift for fun and strength not hypertrophy, so sometimes I will do something random like 100 cleans or bodyweight work.
