Should a woman do higher reps?
 
Should a woman do higher reps?

Watcha think?

how long is a piece of string?

I'm assuming you mean higher reps than a man who has the same goals.

Answer is no.

Relative to goals, the same "principles" that apply to men also apply to women.

Women should lift no different than men. PERIOD.

All of the above :) But to add to that, there was a lifter/trainer a few years back state that women's muscle fibres react slightly differently to those of a man and so we should be doing 1 rep more and 1 set more than what the male counterpart is doing.
However, I never do, I just do what I do, it seems to work. :march:

Men can't even find consensus about what consitutes a good set/rep scheme. I don't see women being any different.

^Agree, we just need to select the right weight for the right rep scheme, that's all, just like a man does.

Low reps don't build muscle right?

Don't know how many times I've heard that in response to the recommendation of a 5x5...

Is it ok to use 10-12 reps for sets if I try to push myself for more when I can??
