So after Chris Shutgart said using WS4SB with the V-Diet is not a sensible idea, since both are programmed for different goals (paraphrasing but you get the gist), it got me thinking... If it's not Strength then it's hypertrophy right? Therefore is fat loss training just like hypertrophy training i.e. higher reps. I am ignoring cardio work here. Strictly using weights for fat loss.
This got me a little worried since I've been taught that the typical bro statment of "higher reps cut your muscles" is completely false. I get you don't "cut" muscles by higher reps, but is there some underlying truth here?
Higher reps = greater energy expenditure and metabolic shift, therefore it works well for fat loss. Example, TNation recommends complexes for fat loss, but surely this will have a significant impact on muscle hypertrophy or is there a fundamental difference between the two?
