Hey guys,

There seems to be a bit of misconception here.

Jonno is right. You will not put on bulk unless you are eating in excess. You will defiantly improve your strength, but you wont add any muscle.

There are three forms of resistance training, defined as followed.

Endurance - high reps - light weight - no rest
Hypertrophy - Medium reps - moderate to heavy weight - little rest (1-2 min)
Strength - Low reps - maximal heavy weights - large rest (2-5 min)

Your resistance training should reflect your goals that should be moulded to the above training regimes.

I will be posting soon on hypertrophy training as well as giving you a link to what I regard as the best muscle gain program as well as the best cutting program on the market today.

So keep posted and keep training hard.

Jockster

Back to gym and smashing it hard.
Todays sessions...
Deadlifts, 3 sets of 5. Then a set of 20 at bodyweight.
After that I cut an old dudes hair who thought he was going to join the marines. I informed him we dont have the marines in Australia.
He was... devastated.

Yea bro my gym is so ghetto.
Im thinking of joining FF on Chapel. I'd be the only dude using the squat rack anyway.
They love their machines there too much to get in my way.

I never thought resistance helps you lose weight. I thought it build strength, endurance, and tones and shapes the body.
