Is doing 1 to 5 reps for strength and 6 to 12 for muscle size correct? Yes, but too many trainees use these rules wrong!
Rep Range Riots!I have been to many a bodybuilding and workout forum where people get into huge fights about what's the best rep range for strength and muscle growth. The basic "rules" being these:
- 3 - 5 reps per set for maximum strength
- 6 - 12 reps per set for maximum size
- 15 or more reps per set trains endurance
