Brian and Eric have an in-depth discussion about rep ranges. They discuss what the research says, the importance of variety, and how they recommend choosing your rep range for each exercise.
Who experiences less injuries, bodybuilders or powerlifters? What do the coaches take into consideration when choosing their rep ranges? What are the potential downsides of very high rep ranges? What are the potential downsides of very low rep ranges? If you’re running a strength block, do the rep ranges on your isolation exercises need to come down? If you’re plateaued on an exercise, could switching exercises help? What is The Principle of Varied Practice?
