Tip #1 - the way you count reps. I don't know if I'm the only one that notice, but I find it easier if you count your reps differently.

For example, say you're doing a set with 8 reps. Instead of going 1 through 8, you can count from 1 to 4, then count 1-2, 1-2 twice. Emphasize the 1-2, 1-2. I think it's just a psychological advantage...counting in smaller numbers may trick you into believing the set is easier than it was suppose to be.

Tip #2 - to be added later...

that doesn't sound like a bad idea. maybe ill try that. another tip, specifically for bench. it seems like whenever i bench with a spotter towards the end of my set, when i start to get very fatigued and close to failure i think i sometimes don't push it hard enough the last couple sets, knowing i have a spotter there to help me if needed. my advice is to try and picture it as if no one is spotting you and if you dont get those reps up then the bar will fall on your head.

That's good if you want to cut, not bulk.

hahaha how untrue. The differnce between bulking and cutting is basically diet, and maybe cardio. Lots of people still get ripped with no cardio, because of their diet. I am the inside hoops resident bodybuilder, feel free to ask any questions on training/eating :)

yeah your right. the difference between bulking and cutting is diet and cardio. it's all about losing weight. you wont get cut using ***** weights. whenever i try and bulk or cut i use the same amount of sets and reps that i would normally use.

eating the right foods and enough calories and protien helped me get bulk. when i was 15 i weighed 130 and in 3 and a half months i bulked up to 155 and i never changed the number of reps that i usually did.i just worked out three times i week and let my muscles rest the other 4 day.i have kept going up since and now im 17 and i weigh 175 and im about six two.

On a side not, since i took up bodybuilding over basketball, I notice how small most average basketball players are. I play maybe once a week now, and I jump right into the post, because i usually have some tall skinny kid on me (no homo).

yeah at the gym that i go to there is usually very good competition but most of the guys are just skinny and athletic. the only really big guys usually are the bodybuilders and football players that don't have much skill but can just man-handle guys.

:p

I also recommend not doing this on every set, just on tough sets where you know there's a chance you may not reach a certain number of reps.
