Not saying this article is worht anything but a dr. Who works out in the same place i work out had this convo last night, i asked him what he thought. He is older and shreded with muscle..he does shows and is at 4 percent body fat or something like that..he said He never lifts heavy.. His reps are between 10/15/20 he said lifting heavy was for the birds...now im not saying he is right or wrong but it makes you think...for me i mix the two..
