Time under tension should not be underestimated for hypertrophy.

If you manage to do a set of 50 rep squats, you will not stay small =)
As a beginner, im still confused with the "big muscles are strong muscles" versus "high reps for hypertrophy" discussion...
Im guessing you have to be strong first, in order to be able to an effective set of 20+ reps if you're looking to get big?
