This type of Q. and following sub Q's can get very tricky, and even more so on this site with its rules. Leaving answers being best left unsaid at times as the answers can breach rules!!Originally Posted by kitkat1
with your guys working on 1-6 reps etc, them being the track guys yar? And i take it, they are also mainly trying to gain Strength v's size, (400m after all - how big do you want to be)
From my experience, i have shown no size in lean tissue that would indicate 3-5reps making one "bigger". ie, noticable size aka bodybuilding.
higher reps, from 6-12 have shown size increases, as long as short recoverys, done every 3 days etc is also followed.
Its getting to the old arguement of Mike Mentzer v's Arnold talk again!! (does it ever stop?) Mike converted a lot of guys in the 80's, and his beliefs still linger. Talk to any REal bodybuilder who actually used to be Skinny, and they will tell you, to get big, "Pump weights", to get strong, "lift" heavy. THe amount of Bodybuilders who were already big then switched to the Heavy Duty style, who have been trashed, injured etc etc is stagering.
So, im not really going to get too much into it, brings out arguments, so im leaving it here.
