How Many Reps Should I Do To Get Big

How many reps should I do if I want to gain weight fast? If I wanted to bulk up fast, then I would do 6-8 reps per set. I would train with heavy weights too, and if I found that 6-8 reps was too much, then I would aim to do at least 6 reps per set of each exercise that I do.

Lifting with heavy weights and using low reps is one of the best ways to bulk up quickly. If you decide to train with heavy weights and low reps, make sure you do not over do it and use too much weight to the point where you cannot perform the exercise correctly. Never lift an amount of weight that is going to knock your form out of balance.

How Many Reps Should I Do To Get Ripped

How many reps should I do if I want to get ripped to the bone? That is easy because above I described to you that I would train with heavy weights and do low reps if I wanted to bulk up fast. I would do the opposite if I wanted to do the opposite. What this means is that I would use light weight for each exercise that I do, and I would try my hardest to do high reps. So how many reps should I do exactly? In this case I would do 20-25 reps per set of every exercise that I do.

A lot of fitness experts and bodybuilders will say train with light weight and high reps when the goal is to get shredded fast.

ABS, Calves And Forearms: How Many Reps Should I Do

A lot of people ask how many reps should I do for my abs? High reps because it seems that abs respond the best to high reps. Calves and forearms also seem to respond to high rep training quite well. This means that when you train your abs, forearms and calves you should really try to do between 15-25 reps per set of every exercise that you do for these muscles.

As you gain more workout experience you can train abs, forearms and calves often. 3-4 days a week, every other day is a good schedule to follow.

How Many Reps Should I Do If I Am Doing Cardio

How many reps should I do if I do cardio when I workout? Simple, whatever my workout goals are at the time. If I want to bulk up, then I still would train with heavy weight and low reps. If my goal was to get shredded and lose weight, then I would train using light weight and high reps. If I wanted to get big and ripped, then I would train with both heavy and light weight, high and low reps. It all really depends on what my fitness goals were.

Figuring out the amount of reps you should be doing is not rocket science but keep this article in mind and you will be on your way to reaching your fitness goals.
