How many repsThe number of repetitions you should do when you exercise with weights, is directly related to the goal you want to achieve. The one who wants clean power is going to do different number of reps from the one who pursues to increase muscle mass / force and from others who want muscular endurance .

How many reps you should do based on our goal (force - muscle mass - muscle strength)
Maximum power : not more than 6 , so we have 6-1 reps, with 2-5 minutes break ( The descend duplications increase the break, the maximum weight that we do in one repetition we rest 5 minutes).

Increase muscle mass and strength : 8-12 reps , 40-90 seconds break (ideal for bodybuilding / fitness).
Muscular endurance : 15 to 20 reps , 30 seconds break .

Do not get weights which you can handle with difficult so you will do correct the technique. Especially if our goal is to increase muscle mass, we get heavy pounds thinking they will do more volume and we lose the ball with the technique of the exercise. We are moving to a larger amount of weight only when we make 8 reps with perfect technique .
