So why is it that all of the articles/discussions on here seem to lead towards a lower weight/higher rep scheme for size and a higher weight/lower rep scheme for strength when all of these other "personal trainers" tell everyone that low weight high reps will tone your muscles instead of lifting heavy and with low reps?
Their argument is something along the lines of doing more work - but yet isn't the 3x10 a classic size building scheme?? Or is there something to their "toning" argument when used with a ridiculously low weight?
I'm currently having this discussion with my g/f since all of the personal trainers and professors and such at our university tell her she should be using low weight/high reps for getting "toned" without being bulky. I'm trying to switch her to a 5x5 or even an 8x3.
Who's right? Why? and how can I convince her if I'm right?
