Heavy weights V's Medium weights for growth


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Heavy weights V's Medium weights for growth within the Anabolic Steroids category.

Excerpt: not really an AS question. With suffering an injury lately I just wondered what you all thought about this: which is more likely to build the most muscle?: 1) V. heavy weights, lowish reps with average form which result in the muscle not getting a 'great pump' or 'great feel'. Or 2) A medium weight, very strict in form for 12reps resulting in a good pump and good feel in the muscle. Although not taken to failure.

    not really an AS question. With suffering an injury lately I just wondered what you all thought about this:

    Or

    2) A medium weight, very strict in form for 12reps resulting in a good pump and good feel in the muscle. Although not taken to failure.

    Just wondered on opinions as im using the second method due to this injury of mine.

    Cheers.

    I generally stick with the medium weights... I am not a powerlifter and dont claim to be.

    When I go to the gym I look for the pump not the amount of weight I can press, pull or bounce off me... BB is about intensity and form( diet is in there somewhere too ), not the poundages.

    Just my .02

    #2 for me.(but taken to failure) I've experimented with both and they are both important, but my best muscle growth came from #2. I was training that way because i was injured as well.

    BigAndy69, so by training with medium weights you made better gains, even with an injury? - this sounds good to me as in my current injured form I cant press my usual heavy weights as my left side seems to have lost alot of strength.
