Hi - after an illness that ran me down I am now starting to do weight training to build myself up. at present I do 100 bench presses with a 20kg bar in one session, and am about to progress to something more taxing.
My question is - for maximum benefit, should I do more presses with the existing weight, or use a heavier one with initially fewer lifts ?
welll dont take this the wrong way but why in the hell would you do anything over 15 reps...thts just dumb..
my school we usually do 3 sets of 5... 5 sets of 1..
I know this because im 15 and my maxout on bench is 225...
If you want to build I was always told more weight less reps. If you want to tone, less weight, more reps.
I am glad to hear you have beaten on battle.
I'm now doing 15 initially, then down to 6,6,5,4 with 40Kg
I'm looking for advice, not to be insulted, ok ?
