#2: Reps Are Good For Body Building

It’s a common question amongst beginners: how much weight should you start with? The answer to this question is not simple. It’s more about what your end goal is.

Whether you are looking to build strength or to build up muscles, it can give you an idea about how much weight to lose.

For strength building, its great to do heavy sets with fewer than 6 reps.

For muscle building, it is ideal to choose a weight which makes you reach muscle failure somewhere between 8 to 12 reps.

You can also build muscle endurance when you do 15 reps or more.
