Weight exercises vary according to the fitness enthusiast’s goal. The sets, repetitions and weight settings differ depending on whether the lifter wants bulk, strength or tone.
If muscle bulk and size are important, lift with moderate sets of 1-3 reps of heavier weights.
If strength is more important, lift with moderate sets of 4-7 repetitions of weight pyramids.
If muscle tone is more important, lift with a greater number of sets, of 8+ repetitions, with moderate or lighter weights.
As a caution, awkwardness accompanies any body change, including muscle growth. So allow for an amount of personal uncoordinated stumbling oafishness while your fat changes to brick.
And don’t forget to include 60 grams of protein a day, by weight. Read the packaging to verify the grams.
