    The posts above mine contained a high total amount of reps.
    So high that I would be embarassed to post my low volume workouts.

    If it's working for you, then don't worry about what others think.

    I keep thinking that the amount of reps I do is too high, and have you noticed how I never put weights against the exercises I do ;)

    Just post it, and if anyone laughts, hit them with a dumbbell

    I was gonna drop it. Because I felt like I was spending too much time exercising. 3 days total body workouts and 2 days cardio. Now I do ten minutes cardio in my warmup which seams to work better.

    flaming- the amount of weight you use isn't an issue ,as long as your using a weight that pushes you to get the total number of reps your trying to get, then who cares how much, your lifting for a pwer lifting competetion, so do what is heaviest for you.

    Everyones goals are different, plus nobody posts each and every training session they do so you can't really compare your workouts to others imo.

    I like seeing what others are doing. People doing bodypart splits reminded me that I havent trained my calves in months for example.

    Keep it up people, and don't be shy about posting your workouts, my numbers suck, but it's like G said as long as you push yourself hard who are others to complain. (Noone really complained about other peoples workouts, I'm just saying)

    Happy training Ladies and Gents. :)

    Did you try deloading and/or switching up sets/reps?
  17. g-bells

    g-bells Don't look up!

    yes , i've just got back into heavy after a long strecth of tri and super setting. and for those who say high rep/ and or supersets only work for endurance are miss lead because it has worked for me by getting my muscles in top shape for the switch to heavy punding. as for my sticking point i have this happen quite often and i'll have to switch up the rep skeem to surpass the plateau, but thanks for the advice :)

    Hmm, would you say its better for a beginnner to focus on high reps and then switch to ME/heavy type stuff later?

    you have to tinker around and find what works best for you. it took me a long time and i tried numerous routines before i found what works for me, but if you are just starting out, high reps would be a good way to get the muscles in shape to withstand a heavier routine.
