Hypertrophy vs Strength
▪️When you are training for strength, it’s best to keep your resistance high and the rep range in the lower end (between around 2-6 reps).
▪️But for hypertrophy (muscle growth), research has discovered that the sweet spot is somewhere between strength (2-6 reps) and endurance (15+ reps). So you should aim around 6-15 reps to optimize your muscle growth for your upper body.
▪️For both rep ranges, I’d advise that you start with the most important workouts for your goals, which are usually heavy compound exercises. After that, finish off the day with isolation workouts as shown in the post.
