Do you even lift? This is broscience at its finest more reps doesn't get you cut less bodyfat does. Anyway op I suggest you get on a legit program and don't ever eliminate squat and deadlifts from your program if you want to get swole. Here is a program that got me from 180-200 pounds in 4 months

Good luck


Higher reps increase your ability to burn more calories, thus lowering your body fat. Don't be so quick to point fingers.

So you're basically telling me if I have been building muscle bulking up as soon as I go on a cut I should switch up to lighter weight higher reps? Good look in preserving your muscle on a cut bruh your world. High reps to get cut is a myth I've been working out in the five rep range for five years and I'm gurenteed I'm more shredded then anyone that post in this topic. I'm happy to post a picture of me shirtless at 218 pounds. Post that myth on bodybuilding.com and you will be taught a lesson by people that actually lift and look like they lift.

If you're doing enough weighted reps to engage the cardiovascular system to that extent then you deserve to get cut.

I never said any of that. I'm just indicating that its not necessarily bro science. If you're not exactly super serious about weight lifting but are interested in getting into shape, a regiment like p-90x with lower weights but a very rigorous cardiovascular high rep workout will most definitely help.

I have always been a huge proponent that depending on what you're trying to do, diet is 90% of the workout regiment.

I would stick to the lighter reps and diet in the beginning. Then, build your routine up until you can handle the heavy lifting. Because, if you go straight into heavy lifting, you will be sore all the time and not want to lift. Routine is key. Being at the gym at the same time and eating at certain times each and every day.

Good advice. If I could go back to when I started I would rotate cycling/swimming/running for overall core fitness and heavy boxing for building upper body symmetry. You'd explode when finally hitting the heavy weights after a year of this.

I remember when I decided to train for a 26 mile marathon. I don't think I ran more than 2 miles at a time before that. I started off with 2 miles a day for 2-3 weeks then went to 4 miles for a couple weeks until I was doing 8 to 10 miles 4-5 days a week. I then would incorporate stopping every 2 miles at a certain spot and doing 50 decline pushups and 50 situps then continue running. I wouldn't stop for a breather as I would run to the spot and immediately drop to do my reps to keep the heart pumping. Eventually, I got (8) miles with 250 pushups and 250 situps done so easily that is was just a routine. I would start at 6pm every day and be done before 7:10pm and be home by 7:30pm. That was my routine. My body would actually be looking forward to it after a while.

It's great when your body reaches that point of needing heavy activity just to feel calm. It's funny with the health problems in our country and overall lack of fitness when you hear people not liking exercise cause it causes soreness etc.. if only they could experience the flip side of the coin, they'd never want to stop.

That's a pretty strong routine, and it sounds like it just evolved naturally based on what your body was asking for.. which is the way it should be. People get too caught up with "the best routines" and forego just listening to what their body wants.

Really building up to a good routine is the key. But, I also eat a ton of steak, chicken and pork each week. I probably bought about 10-15lbs a week from teh Meat Market. Now, I am about 6-8lbs per week as I am getting older.
