All routines that I have looked at in the past that cycle rep ranges state for ex. Week 1 - 5 (reps) x 3, week 2 - 8 x 3, week 3 12 x 2. But after speaking to an experianced gym go’er, he told me that I should be doing differnt rep ranges for different exercises, rather than using this rep range guide for all the exercises.
After I told him my goals are for muscle mass, he said were I’m doing between 5 - 12 reps from 3 to 2 sets for my bench, I should be doing from 3 - 6 reps for 3 - 5 sets for deads and 4 - 8 reps for 3 - 5 sets. Because any more than this on squats and deads may compromise form and turn them into more of a endurance exercise.
What are people opinions on this or shall I stick to following the same rep ranges for all exercises?
