quick question for all you meatheads..

in prevention of cluttered threads i think we should make this into a "ask a question/need tips" thread. anywayssss ill start off.

at the moment im quite limited with weights (brother borrowed some). so i was wondering if it is possible to gain mass/muscle by doing exercises with lighter weights? im quite confused about the light weights/heavy reps = definition fiasco. so can someone clear this up for me?

heavier weight, less reps = more mass, bigger
lighter weight, more reps = lean, cut

you wont gain as much mass by lifting lighter...i'd say put some money down and get a gym membership...

high reps for toning is a myth. keep the reps under 12. Like tK suggested, get a gym membership
