Fitness Myth: Higher Reps = Light Weight . I realize that doing more reps typically means using lighter weight. The issue isn’t that, per se. . The problem I run into, especially thus far in my monthly group Reform Xclusive, is that a lot of folks think there are pre determined numbers that define “light”. . There cant really be a standard number for what is light because there are so many differences from individual to individual. I see many people use the dumbbell rack as a guide to heavy/light, or a set number say over or under 25’s etc. . I see this in both men and women, but predominantly the latter. Even though women are way more responsive to lifting (and lifting heavy) than they were 10 years ago when I started out, a lot still think that going to heavy will make you bulky. . Being bulky is a topic for a different day, but, the short version is that you wont get bulky unless you TRY to get bulky. . Anyway, situations may play out something like this, “I want to do 10-12 reps and I could probably do 30’s, but that’s too heavy I need to use 15’s since it’s higher rep day.”. The problem with that is the lifter wont make much (if any) progress because they are not pushing their body and muscles hard enough to make real changes. Sure repetitive lifts with 15’s is better than nothing, but why not reach the goal faster if you can? . *Just to note: all reps whether heavy or light should be with perfect form* . Have you ever had your mind play tricks on you like this?
