Strength Training Doesn't Build Muscle
I see it dozens of times every week: (in fact, just read another thread about it)...
"Strength training doesn't build muscle."
"You have to work in the 8 to 12 rep range for hypertrophy."
I will state for the record that most of my sets over the course of my life were under 6 reps. Most of my sets now are under 4-5 reps. I like training in this range. I get ADD on high rep sets. I don't appear to be shrinking.
What say you on this "controversial" topic?
