Lyle, which repetition range do you think is the most apropiate to use in the Repetition Method of WSB for strength improvement?. They talks about 6-15 reps, which is too wide!.

Why is that too wide of a range?

Beacause I think that a 6 reps set it's functional hypertrophy, while a 15 reps set... it's almost strength endurance.

For strength gains I think that contractile protein gains (6-8 reps) would be more useful, but Dave Tate, Simmons and co. knows why they recommend this.

Then it might be most productive to ask them why they recommend it instead of asking me to try to read their minds.

If you can knockout 15 reps in 30 seconds, it is still hypertrophy. Powerlifters dont slow anything down.

I think if your set takes up to a minute you are training hypertrophy. I can do 20 leg presses in a minute.

I tend to think that all the rep ranges are useful, including for powerlifting.

Typically on a well fueled big sessionIll start off with very heavy powerlifting,1-3 reps, about 5 sets, then I'll do 5 sets of 10 with the same lift, then I'll do loads of sets of several exercises of 1 minute duration/1 minute rest, using a timer and not counting reps, just adjust the weight to get near failure after a minute.

It s like doing all the UD2 workout styles on one day.

I manage to get two sessions like this a week,an upper and a lower.

Rest of the week I concentrate on light fast stuff with an eye on cardio.

Lyle, don't know if this is your intention, but the main site does not seem to be updating - the protein intake Q and A is still showing up.
