Depends on what you want to accomplish. If your a bigger man, looking to lose weight and tone up you want lighter weights lots of reps. If your looking to bulk up add mass you want heavier weight less reps. | Report abuse Reply to unoriginal1 The Stealthinator January 8, 2013 4:40:10 AM I'm a slim built person not really trying to lose weight, but put on muscle. | Report abuse Reply to The Stealthinator unoriginal1 January 8, 2013 1:44:47 PM Heavier weight the better then.
