Re: Workout Thread

6-8 reps, 2 sets? You should be doing at least 3 sets dude.

10-12, 3 sets. In my opinion.

Everything I have read is that you want to do enough weight that you can only do 6-10 reps.

And I could do 3 sets, but in the workout routine I'm on, it calls for sets of multiple exercises mixed up, somewhat like circuit training.

A rep is every time you make the full motion. For instance, when you bring your arm down and back up, that's one rep, and then you do multiple reps per set, and then you do multiple sets per exercise.

In R-Stars case, every push-up he does is one rep (repetition), when he does 50 push-ups that is one set, and when he does two sets he is done with the exercise.

I recommend you start reading menshealth.com and mensfitness.com as well as reddit.com/r/fitness
The reddit fitness section is great for beginners because any question you have has probably been asked and answered there.

Re: Workout Thread

Sometimes doing high weight-low reps will actually prevent your muscles from getting bigger for a certain amount of time. Doing low weight-high reps sends more oxygen to your muscles/veins, and swells up your muscles.

Isopure Zero Carb is very good. So is Syntrax Nectar and ON Gold Standard.

3-6 sets of 6-12 reps is generally recommended for size, but 2 might be appropriate for him depending on what other exercises he's performing in that workout.

Re: Workout Thread

If I'm doing low weight-high reps, I usually do 3 sets; 24 then 18 then 12.

If I'm doing high weight-low reps, I usually do 3 sets; 12 then 10 then 8.

Always good to switch things up, though.

Most supplements are nothing more than ridiculous marketing claims. Save your money.

I expect some good increases over the next month. And I bought a 50 serving bottle of no-xplode and that's all I'm going to buy, the only reason I got it is because I hit a wall and wanted some extra juice, I didn't buy it for the long term. And I have noticed a slight gain in my build over this week, my biceps are definitely fuller, but no weight gain yet.

I'm a little confused though because when I was reading about creatine mono it said to avoid caffeine. But no-xplode has a bunch of caffeine and creatine in it, so one thing says creatine and no caffeine, and the other says mix creatine and caffeine. Oh well, the no-xplode will only last about 2 months anyway.
NO products aren't mass builders, so don't be surprised if you don't gain weight from them. They can help you get a pump and help you concentrate though.

In my personal opinion, NO-XPLODE is pretty useless. The only explosion you will get from it will be on the toilet and you will get less and less energy with each serving. You can do far better with a cup of coffee before your workout IMHO.

I do 4-5 exercises targeted specifically at the biceps and two where it's a supporting muscle. I do (in order) Seated rows, preacher curls, pull backs, outer bicep curls, inner bicep curls, hammer curls. All of these exercises are 3 sets of 10-12 except for hammer curls. I do those to exhaustion, three sets.

That's halfway right. You do plateau at certain sizes and would benefit from a week or two off from working out or working out that intensely. Doing low weight high rep days are very good for leaning out because it does allow for more aerobically driven exercising. However, it doesn't swell up your muscles, well all working out swells up your muscles temporarily. Working out with low resistance is great because it increases endurance and vascularity to the muscles while high resistance increases size.

Personally, I am a creature of habit and hate changing up my workout so I just do right in the middle of the two. I just do 10-12 reps per set and get both benefits, just not as fast as either by itself but faster than having to do one then the other.

I didn't buy it to build mass, I bought it so I have more energy and blood flow so I can work out harder resulting in strength gains. I also said it is a temporary thing to help me get past a wall, I'm not planning on using it after I'm done with this bottle, and I do agree with the toilet statement lol.

The swelling of your muscles is inflamation and it always happens during a workout. I read a chart a while ago that shows the amount of benefit per rep. After about 15 reps it does more bad then good.
