i have somewhat of a conflicted opinion as to which one is more beneficial to which body part. personally i cannot get my chest to grow without big weight and low reps. and high reps will never build my strength up period. but on the other hand my bi's for example are not responding well to tryin to move heavy weight at all, neither in size or strength. i seem to have to use an 8-10 slow moving rep(at least 6 minimum) to see any results in both size and strength here. one is telling me to go low reps heavy weight the other telling me higher reps slower increases in weight or gain nothing. with this being said i personally will never go to high rep sets in squats,bench, or deads for strenght or muscle growth cuz i don't believe it can achieve it as well as low reps.
