If you've read my previous articles you'll know that when it comes to muscle growth, I lean towards time under tension and adequate rest periods as being the culprit to eliciting muscle growth for bodybuilders.

Do Any of These Styles Describe You?
1-RM Tests (Repetition maximum tests)
purpose: to measure maximum strength of various muscle and muscle groups.
procedure: One repetition maximum tests (1-RM) is a popular method of measuring isotonic muscle strength.
Third set: 1 x 8 repetitions:
Now, we're starting to get into heavier weight but at this stage you shouldn't be anywhere near your maximum. Yep, you shouldn't be approaching failure or having a super hard time with this set.
After you have warmed up by using a light weight for 12 or 20 reps, choose a weight for your next set that will challenge you for your goal number of repetitions.
Repetition A repetition (often called a "rep") is a single completion through the full range of motion of a particular exercise.
The word reps is a shortening of repetitions. A Repetition is one complete movement of an exercise. This must be a complete range of motion of the exercise and must be performed correclty.
The purpose of a repetition is to create tension in the muscle through a full range of motion, that when repeated throughout a set, would fatigue a muscle.
Repetition One complete movement of an exercise.
Rep Out Repeat the same movement over and over until you are unable to do anymore.
Reps Abbreviation for REPETITIONS.
Repetitions: 8 to 12 lifts are considered a set. Do 1 to 3 sets, allowing 30 to 60 seconds of rest between sets.
Speed: 3 seconds to lift, 1- or 2-second pause, 4 seconds to lower. Remember to breathe.
Repetition or "Rep" - A single movement, as in doing one squat. This is going down and then going back up. For toning, strength and endurance, do more reps at a lower weight.
Speed of repetition, cadence, or time under tension
Tempo Training Shorthand (seconds) ...
Repetition Maximum (1RP) - Similar to absolute strength, the maximum you can lift in one go.
Slow Twitch - Muscle cells that contract slowly and are resistant to fatigue. Good for long distance running or swimming.
Repetition (rep) - The number of times you lift and lower a weight in one set of an exercise. For example, if you lift and lower a weight 10 times before set-ting the weight down, you have completed 10 "reps" in one set.
One complete execution of an exercise, often used in strength / weight training.
Also known as rep.
Repetition- The number of times an exercise is repeated within a single exercise “set.'
Resistance training- See “Strength training' ...
Each individual count of an exercise that is performed. Series of repetitions called "sets" are performed on each exercise in your training program.
Repetition The act of repeating an action/movement.
Resting Heart Rate A measure of heat beats per minute when the body is completely at rest, such as in the morning right out of bed.
Repetition - The number of times you perform a certain movement to complete a set. More commonly abbreviated to 'rep,' the quantity represents the desired adaptation and determines the amount of rest you will require.
Goal Repetitions: The number of planned repetitions designated to perform during an exercise session.
Goal Setting: A plan or strategy for causing a behavioral change.
Do 15 Repetitions per Side
As you move through this exercise, you should take care that you exercise both sides of your body equally. To achieve this, start out with 15 repetitions of this exercise per side.
Load - Repetition Relationship
The strength training zone requires you to use loads in the range of 60% to 100% of 1RM. The relationship of percentage loads to number of repetitions (rounded up) to failure is as follows: ...
Longer repetitions, which are run quickly with a short recovery, involve the lactate system (burning legs syndrome).
Consistent steady running, strides and recovery stages, involve the oxygen system (you can talk during these sections).
Forced repetitions -- Assistance to perform additional repetitions of an exercise when muscles can no longer complete movement on their own.
Repetitions: Perform 3-5 for each stretch
Stretch slowly and smoothly; Never bounce
Maintain normal breathing during each movement
Focus attention on muscle being stretched; try to limit movement in other body parts ...
Repetitions The number of times an exercise is repeated in one set.
Resting Heart Rate (RHR) Your pulse at rest.
Repetitions can be reasonably high as the nature of some exercises means there can be up to 20 seconds between efforts - for example when a medicine ball has to be retrieved.
Repetition or "rep" - One complete exercise that includes both concentric and eccentric movements.
A repetition (or "rep") is the act of lifting and lowering a weight once in a controlled manner. A "set" consists of several repetitions performed one after another with no break between them.
Do repetitions of abdominal crunches (modified sit-ups), side-lying leg lifts, and squats.
High-repetition resistance training may be technically less intense than using heavier weight, but it won't feel like it. This kind of training induces a wicked pump, and you may be very sore as your body adapts to the training.
