Tip #9: Vary your rep range

I still find it baffling to this day that people like working within the 12-15 rep range. I assume its because this information has been passed on from lifters of old that more reps would provide muscle definition and less reps will make you big. Well, believe me…this isn’t true. Why not do yourself a favor this weekend and work within the lower end of the spectrum. Try working within the 6 to 8 rep range because not only will it allow you to lift more weight, but it will also provide you that pumped feeling that will carry on for the rest of the weekend.
