REPETITIONS FOR DEFINITION AND BULK

Q: Is it better to concentrate on performing  high repetitions for definition and low repetitions for bulk?

A: Both of these assumptions are incorrect. Ninety-nine percent of muscular definition has to do with a person’s overall body fat level, which is primarily a result of genetics and calories obtained from one’s Personal Eating Plan.

High repetitions have virtually no effect on muscualr definition. If you desire greater definition, you must reduce your percentage of body fat by adhering to a balanced low-calorie Personal Eating Plan. But even then your potential definition is limited by your genes.

Muscualr bulk or size is best produced by intensive exercise that lasts at least 30 seconds, but no more than 70 seconds. Using our recommended repetition guidelines a typical repetition of an exercise takes between 6-10 seconds to complete. Simple multiplication reveals that 6 second reps would permit sets of 5-11 reps where as 10 second reps would permit  sets of 3-7 reps.  For optimal results I recommend that you experiment with slow controlled repetitons while performing sets using the above guidlines.
