    ok so i no all the rep ranges for diferent goals but how can these be interpreted for the best results for example should you be hitting 10-12 on all sets and change the weights to enable you to do this. or should you reach 12 on the first set and stick with same weight on all sets. or should...

    Hi people. I was at the gym today, and I asked some dude some questions about the weights etc... He told me for mass building, and by mass building I take it he meant BIGGER muscles, 8 reps was what I should be doing. Any one shed some light. I am like every one else looking to get bigger!!
