Rep Range To Ripped : How Many Reps To Tone Up

FACT-OF-THE-DAY-logo 

Don’t get me wrong, there is far more to toning, defining and getting ripped than simply getting your rep range right. Performing cardio on top of a consistent resistance training regime is great for toning…however, rep range definitely comes into play. When looking to lose body fat and get ripped you need to increase the intensity of the training session, so look at hitting a rep range of 10-12 per set, and try to perform a superset whereby you minimise rest between your bench press and your bicep curls (for example). A superset means you go from one exercise i.e. bench press, straight into a set of 10-12 bicep curls with minimal rest between sets. This increases the energy expenditure of the exercise and depletes glycogen meaning you start dipping into those fat stores around your mid- section.
