Re: Once you've bulked up
No that wonít make any difference also why would you be lifting heavy if you want to get ripped? Also if you doing low reps ( i.e. heavy) you shouldnít do to many sets, thereís no equation that says lower the reps the more sets you should do, in fact itís quite the contrary and most important factor is the intensity you train at.. If youíre trying to get ripped your not so interested in building any more muscle, therefore you should switch from heavy weights and low sets to something a little more aerobic and more inline with muscle maintenance. Circuit training, a muscle a day and super setting are more inline. But not low reps, thatís for building muscle. Of course if you up your cardio and reduce your calories youíll still lose body fat even if you are doing low reps. When Iím talking about low reps I mean from 2 to 6 reps, which I regard as heavy lifting and intense training, meaning I would do perhaps only 1 to 2 working sets and train less frequently to give the body time to recover as heavy lifting pust a lot of strain on the joints and connecting tissue.
