How will you know it to avoid it? Are you going to measure your arms daily to see if they pump and recede later? Are you afraid you'll be tricked into puffy muscles by those pesky reps you have to do anyway?

If you have a decent balance of higher reps and lower reps or simply stay in a moderate rep zone you will get bigger and stronger.

There is no one in the world who has exclusively puffy useless muscles that deflate at the end of the day. There's also no one out there who has exclusively hard dense muscles but no real size to them.

Everybody is going to get a balance of both as they go along. Much later, they will manipulate thier individual reactions to high and low reps to their particular advantage in their particular sport.

But for a really long time, everybody does both and it is not something to obsess about.

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.

Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96
