Opinion/feedback on rep recommendations vs weight increase

5 Answers | Asked by Rachel Langley on Jul 07, 2014

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Mar 11, 2015

To me the most important consideration is working to temporary muscle failure by the 12-15th rep. Good form, good posture are assumed. Without temporary failure the IIb fibers aren't activated. Take care.

20 Answers | Asked by Gus Aguirre on May 10, 2011

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Mar 11, 2015

You have left open a lot of questions. I don't know exactly what you mean by change. Intensity? Frequency? Reps? Sets? If you are referring to resistance overload training I agree that 2-3 months of adherence to a training schedule is appropriate. Take care.
