Re: when i do 6 to 8 reps what am i building?

How many sets are you doing of 6-8reps are you doing? Usually people who do low-reps but several sets are building strength (power lifters).
I go for lean muscle and endurance, low weight but high-reps; I do 2min drills for all the exercises in my circuit training. I achieve muscle fatigue when the 2min is up.
