    Question Squats, high reps vs. low reps






    What does any one feel is the best way to add muscle by doing squats? Using lower weight, higher reps 12-15 range, or a higher weight/ low reps 4-6 range. I feel I have my form good enough now to try some heavier weight. Or is this something that will vary from person to person? Keep in mind I am a newbie.

    Thanks for any advice.

    Both.

    First set heavy/low reps, second set moderate/higher reps.

    As a newbie I would go with a pyramid scheme utilizing high, moderate, and low reps...

    1 x 12-15
    1 x 8-12
    1 x 6-8
    1 x 4-6

    This sounds identical to what I am doing now. I will just start out heavier with the weight since I have not had much trouble finishing my sets. Just wanted to make sure I was on the right track.

    Thanks for the quick responces

    You are doing fine. Just make sure to take each set to near, or absolute failure, and you will grow. Every workout try to add some weight to the bar, even if its just 5 lbs!
