Have been in a debate of late about training regimes. I have been training at the gym most days and I usually do forty five minutes to an hour each night after work. My routine is generally all about the upper body, as looking to burn fat with more reps, less weight. Anyway, I have got nice routine of 4 x 25 reps on each machine with rest, though I do use some leg machines. However, my brother who is a skilled distance runner with various races under his belt, including New York marathon suggests that 8 is the magic figure for reps and anything more than this negates the effect of the first 8 reps but I figure 25 light lifts has to be better than just 8? I know that there are a few fitness experts on the forums - so any advice? Thanks. Pete.
