    Ronnie mentioned in a previous issue that he uses high reps. But he is already devloped to such a high degree that he doesn't really need to pack on more mass; he is actually too heavy so he works more on shaping. Generally, high reps (more than 10 or 12) are not all that effective for building mass. They are good for shaping during your cutting phase.

    I like how you said "They are good for shaping during your cutting phase" and not the typical high reps get you cut BS.

    i like the 6-12 rep range for hypertrophy, less than that emphasizes more on strength gains, and a higher range emphasizes more on endurance gains.

    there is only two ways any given muscle can change shape. That is an increase in size or a decreasing. There has been no substantial studies as of yet on high versus low rep count and which is better for size. And on the subject of cutting and definition. This is body building 101 and it dates back to the early 50s that diet and only diet will affect this area{and newer and better drug intake}.
