    Changing up rep range

    So for the first two months of my PCT I was going heavy with lower rep counts 5-8. And focused on the big 4 (bench, squat, press, dead) but now itís been a full 10 weeks since last pin and I want to switch my rep range up to 15-20 for a month leading into my cycle next month. Whatís yíall opinion on this?

    I like changing my reps as well. I go for workouts with 8 reps then switch to 12 rep range. Never did a long range with 4-5 reps

    Re: Changing up rep range

    I normally stay in the 8-12 range then I switched to 5-8 for pCt and went heavy so now that I feel like Iíve about covered all the test I can I want to move to Focus on leaning out and activating long twitch fibers. Thatís the idea behind this.

    There are no long twitch fibers.

    I have had an injury before from extensive workouts, so after my recuperation from the injury, I have always taken things slow and moderately in order not to aggravate the injury once again. I do change my rep from time to time but I mostly stick it at 4 - 6 reps.

    Fast twitch and slow twitch. My old therapist referred to them as long and short

    Are used to keep the same rate range for a long time then I tore my bicep tendon and my therapist introduced me too long or short twitch fibers along with a whole Lotta other work outs hit all the secondary and stabilizing muscles. Really help me a lot.

    Exactly, I kept pushing myself beyond limit and I paid the ultimate price by pulling a hamstring. It was my first time feeling so pains in my thigh. It took nearly 4 months before I was able to fully workout again because without my legs, I can't really do any meaningful exercise.

    Re: Changing up rep range

    I just switched to 3 exercise 7 sets 10-12 reps per body part and seen some changes fast. I have always been 4-5 sets 6-10 reps per excersize.
    Feel more tired after the workout.

    Re: Changing up rep range

    If I do lower reps heavier weight, about 4-6, balls to the wall. I don't feel the muscle as much as doing higher reps, 8-16. If I do those higher reps, I sore like crazy! That feeling stays for days then and feels good.

    As you already know, I'm laid out with a waist pain injury, so I'm practically not getting involved in any reps at the moment until I get back to my full strength and fitness. So, it's just going out and seeing the world at the moment and enjoying the world cup being played now. It's so sad seeing both Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi get knocked out of the tournament on the same day.
