I am small and thin and i want to grow bigger and get stronger.
I prefer to train with lower reps and high intensity as i hit my maximum quicker and save more time.
But i actually hurt myself by pushing myself too hard. I injured my knees from doing interval sprints. My tricep is injured too from pushing myself to do 100 push ups in one go.
Should i actually change my method by going for more reps with lower intensity? Say instead of doing sprints i go for longer duration jogging? Or using lighter weights but doing more reps.
This should reduce chances of injuries but will it be as effective for me to grow muscles?
Is the exam system out of date?
