Reps and Sets are Misleading

I highly suggest that everyone read this great article by Jon Goodman

In it, you'll learn (if you didn't know it already) the prototypical recipe for building muscle, adding strength, or losing fat. But as Goodman points out, the rules of reps and sets are not written in stone. And oftentimes, the best thing you can do is to break the rules and train in a different rep range than what is typically prescribed. There are personality variables that can impact the results that you experience. And there's also another little known fact...

    Among other things, this sttod out from the article: 'evolve your thinking'. Wise words. Too often I get in an exercise rut and for various reasons have a hard time getting out of it. Great article on something I need to shake up a bit: my strength workout. Thanks!
