I was talking about home gym sets up with a friend of mine and it got us to an Interesting conversation that I would love to hear some thoughts on.
Basically the conversation was around,
‘You can’t looked jacked until you hit certain weights’
We were talking about dumbbell bench press and I had been using 30kg in each hand for reps to failure (until my additional weights arrived).
I think that I can still get growth taking the sets to failure but my friend was of the opinion that you couldn’t look jacked or big until you were repping 45kg per hand for 10-12 reps for 3 sets. So he said no matter how much training I did with 30kgs per side I wouldn’t be able to get big/ jacked etc.
This is all hypothetical as I’ve now got 50kg per side to play with but just wondered on people’s thoughts.
Can you get big (jacked etc) without hitting a weight per reps minimum?
Might be silly but it got me thinking, moving from 3 sets 10-12 with 30kg per side to 50 would make you bigger but is there a minimum to being jacked looking?
Hope my ramblings make sense.
