Of course, this isn’t bad, positive adaptations will unquestionably still take place.
But as we’ll examine in this article, training with different rep ranges may provide a variety of potential benefits.
Previously at the House of Hypertrophy, we saw the scientific literature strongly indicates a wide range of rep numbers are similarly effective for muscle hypertrophy, provided those reps are performed to or close to failure.
4 reps vs 8 reps vs 12 reps for strength and hypertrophy
We’re going to examine a recent study from Japan exploring this.
In this article, we’re examining antagonist supersets, which have you perform two exercises that train opposing muscle groups back to back. We’ll also touch on antagonist stretching too.
