If you do, what weight for each do you tend to use? I use 5kg per dumbbell and do about 100 - 200 lifts a day. Hope to get stronger.
What i know is that Low reps are better

You should look for a mass that makes you come to Faliure at the 3rd round

and remember your muscles grow while ur resting

Please reply.
A lot of repetitions will make the greatest impact on your physical appearance. That's the technique used by most bodybuilders: not very heavy weights but tons and tons of repetitions. By doing so, you make your muscles look bigger but the drawback is that you're making all the fibres shorter which isn't very useful for doing sports afterwards.

But I assume you weren't talking about bench presses, you were talking about tractions with small dumbbells, right?

Three sets of 20 in each arm, with 11Kg, this is just warming up.

I'd read a little more if I were you.

Bodybuilders have a high volume workout with lots of sets to hit the muscles in different ways. They go for a low-medium number of reps.

That seems to be overkill for a warm-up. You could do just one light set and/or stretching.

Hey come on guys. we all made plenty of mistakes when we started! I did anyway; didnt read about it, and trained just my arms and chest every day. And I didnt have any kind of diet plan. Someone could have ripped me to pieces about that if they wanted to, but instead they helped me out. And bearing in mind this is mainly an academic site, I doubt many people come waltzing in here knowing a lot about bodybuilding beforehand.

Yeah the odd few( very few ) seem set in their ways, and wont take any advice, but still...lets not have any digs.

exactly , everyone has different workout plans , as long as your form is right while doing excercises and u make sure not to risk injury , it doesnt matter if u do lower reps or higher reps . Normally i do both , high reps to build endurande , low reps and heavier weights for strength
