I understand completely. I don't train with high reps. Never have. People are constantly debating the need to higher rep bodybuilding sets.

90% of my sets since I began training have been 8 reps and under. At least half of them have probably been 4 to 6 reps. Last year I trained with 90% of my sets between 2 and 4 reps, squats excluded.

I know I train with higher rep sets compared to you CnP guys, but my style is still considered "powerlifting" by most who see it and judge it. I've received comments on Youtube telling me I wasn't a bodybuilder, despite the fact that my arms are 19" and my quads 30".

The myth will never die..."low reps don't build muscle." It's under my avatar

You can definitely train with a focus on TUT, but you still need to push for more weight.
