You guys didn't know high reps with low weights get your SHREDDED? Look at Brad Pitt in fight club, he just did billions of reps with the bar and pink dumb bells

I heartily accept the motto, "That government is best which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically.

Okay, personally I thought low weight high reps weight training + cardio = 10%ish controlling your body fat and diet = 90%ish

According to the Hal Higdon website, low weights + high reps = endurance, higher weight + lower reps = muscle growth.

Genetics will always play a part, though.

Guys I wouldn't so quick to write off that kind of training, especially if it's done in circuit style. If people aren't doing it thinking they are going to "tone" their muscles I don't have any problem with it, I think it can be very effective. Sure you won't gain strenght, but thats not what this guy was looking for.

Well what do you mean by "that kind of training." I was referring to 3 sets x 10-12 reps type training, which sucks. I'm also a huge fan of circuits, particularly the ones that illmatic does. And you can still gain "strength" from circuits, it's just more strength-endurance.

I'm not actually sure what he was implying, but "high reps light weight" to me would be higher than that, up to conditioning level. Definitely not necesarily BB style reps and sets.

High rep low weight does not mean circuit training. I get what youre saying Negation, but those two definitely are not the same. I used to think high rep low weight was to get cut...
