Default Reps Vs Weight

I was at the gym this morning at I was doing some weights.
I am new to working out so forgive me if this is a dumb question.

Should you do more reps with a lower weight, or Less reps with a heaver weight?

Does either one give better results?

To build solid muscle i recommend doing 10-12 reps on a weight that is not too heavy but not too light, in most cases if u are lifting heavy weights , you are trying to max out.

To bulk up do low reps with higher weight, (5-8) reps, if you want lean muscle mass and to cut out do higher reps with lower weight (8-12))

What do you want to increase?

Max Rep = 1-6 reps
Power = 6-8
Overall = 8-12
Lean Mass = 12-15
Endurance = 15+

I am looking to get Bigger and Stronger.

When you say 6-8 reps, what do you mean exactly.

Do you mean 6 reps of 8?

Thanks

than the 10-12 reps 3 sets should be good.

simple yet effectiv starter program.

10-12 reps 3 set.
squats
deadlift
benchpress
downpull
militarypress

these are what we call base exercises because they work big ereas off muslce.

dario has some interesting thoughts on this subject, but forgot to mention the amount of weight.


like others said, it's good to have an idea of what you want to accomplish before you set out on something new.

experimentation, in one particular sense, is having no goal but working from a research perspective.

just make sure that, if you are boxing, your workout routine will not interfere with your boxing practice. there have been a few times where i had a nice workout the day before a few rounds of hard sparring - those days i was comparatively stiff and slightly sore from the previous days workout routine and didn't gain as much as i could've.

now, i make sure that i do vigorous workout routines no less than two days before sparring. any sooner than two days would decrease from the progress i gain or achieve during sparring.

No I mean do a set of 6-8 reps at max output; meaning you can do at least six or no more than eight reps at a certain weight. But I think you'd want to stick to the 8-12 rep range; I usually do and I get great results in power and physique.
