Why do you need to vary reps?

The YMCA I workout at has no hack. They just bought new equipment and I tried to get them to purchase one. I didn't get the job done.

1. Not going deep enough in squat
2. Not using front-squat/zercher
3. Not hitting legs hard/often enough
4. Being afraid of squatting
5. Unintelligent workout order (do squats first if the only other movements your doing are isolation)

Depending on what your aims are various rep schemes promote different muscle responses.

General myths:

Strength ranges: 3 - 5 reps
Hypertrophy ranges: 8 - 12 reps
Muscle endurance ranges: 30 - 40 reps

Most trainees always seem to operate in the 8 - 12 in their days.

So if I do five reps, I won't gain muscular size? That's subject to debate. I feel like one big mistake could be too much variety.

As I said general myth. You'll put on size in the 5 rep range while gaining more strength as opposed to more reps at lower weights.

There is no real wrong or right way when it comes to rep scheme's. We all respond in different ways. I'm not claiming to be a guru on it either.

6. not figuring out what works/doesn't work for your specific body
