    Default Rep Ranges

    what rep ranges do you all feel works the best? the poll is just in general so the majority of your workouts what reps do you use cause obviosly you will go higher on abs, calves etc,
    put in a post what reps ya use for different body parts or if ya use different reps for different times of year, different goals, etc
    on average i use 8-10 on most body parts, but my arms respond well to 12 reps

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

    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

    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.

    I personally do a range of 8-12 with my HIT routine. When I am able to exceed 12 reps in a set, on the next workout, I increase the weight a little.
