I’ve read through the forums and the site and I just want to make sure I’m understanding this point correctly.
Ok, here it goes: The argument between heavy-weight/low-rep (e.g. 5x5) vs. low-weight/high-rep (e.g. Meltdown) for fat loss is that the heavy weight/low-rep people say that during a fat loss period, muscle loss is inevitable but by maintaining strength, you can minimize the muscle loss. While those who believe in low-weight/high-rep say that because muscle loss in inevitable, burn as many calories as you can to minimize the amount of time spent losing fat and muscle. Is this correct?
ALSO, there seems to a consensus and it’s those with higher body fat (something like >12%) should do low-weight/high-rep and those w/ low body fat should do heavy-weight/low-rep. Is this correct as well?
And I just want to point out that even though OVT is supposed to be mainly for muscle building, it seems to be a good compromise between these two schools of thoughts. Opinions?
Thanks in advance for the input!
