I am currently setting up a weight training program to get stronger for basketball.
I am 14 years old, 125 pounds, and 5 foot 5.
As a 14 year old beginner I was told to stay in the 6-15 rep range. I want strength so I wanted to do the lower reps. But I am also a beginner so I dont really have perfect form yet. I am thinking of doing 8-10 reps for 3 sets on every excersise( I’m doing a full body split 3x a week).
My idea was to increase the weight by 5 pounds every week. Will that work?
Or will doing lower reps like 5 or 6 be better.
Let me put it this way.
What will I see more gains from?
5-6 reps increasing the weight 5 pounds every week?
8-10 reps increasing the weight 5 pounds per week?
I havent even started yet so I dont even know if I can handle 5 pound increases.
What do you prefer?
Please help me out.
