    Default Basics of getting stronger and/or bigger

    https://www.thenakedscientists.com/a...after-exercise

    ...I go to the gym and I lift a very light load, I can do lots and lots of reps, and actually what I train there is more the endurance of the muscle. If I want to make the muscle bigger, what Iíve got to do is apply a heavier load but I can only do less reps, and what starts to happen is, and one of the misconceptions is that we increase the number of muscle fibres. It doesnít happen in the human. What we get is a hypertrophy, we get an increase in the size of the fibre.

    Very basic and ambiguous article, also misleading.

    How is it misleading? I thought it fairly accurately summed up the difference between training for endurance or strength.

    I don’t believe 3 to 5 rep’s is the optimal his view is pretty simplistic or ignorant.

    What we need to talk about is “force production” and how do we do this and how do we increase the recruitment of motor units.
    studies suggest it’s what the bodybuilders where doing in the so called golden era and that’s a rep range between 8~12 with occasional ranges in the 15~20 world but for the powerlifter 3~5 does focus on the slow twitch which is probably more beneficial but we are talking about “specificity” here.
    It’s not optimal hypertrophy

    Wilks uses a pyramid when training his strength athletes,a few weeks of 3x8 then 3x5s then a final week of 2x2.looks a lot like wat Ed Coan used to do.at no stage are singles used.its interesting that you can increase your 1 rep max in competition without even going anywhere near singles in training.

    i used to use smolov to peak for competition my best squat was 210 with more in the tank i reckon after a weeks rest after a 3rd week of 185x3x10.i felt very conditioned and the comp wasnt hard however i did find walking out the weight was a bit of an issue as i had nowhere near that on my back in training.im not sure whether for me personally not training in the 90% range in training is a good idea as you can be shocked by the weight when you get to comp.

    in order to be the best you can be i think you need to be proficient at all rep ranges.however you need to get specific for leading into comp.

    I donít know whether youíre serious, taking the piss or just trying to be humorous but you are a creepy unit and I suspect sherk would ban you in a heartbeat only that there are 3 people on this forum lol.
    either way keep up the good work, Iím proud of you.
