I think I understand the basic principle of a program like this. My question is how many reps before it's time to increase weight. I plan on starting a program like this starting this week so tonight I tested and was able to do 28 bicep curls at 10lbs before failure. Is that to many? At what point do I increase the weight to lower the reps. I am looking for more of a lean look. I am only strength training 2 days a week and 5 days of cardio

Thanks

Personally I up the weight when I can do more than 10, but I guess it's up to you! I will leave it to our experts to provide you with a sensible answer! ;)

I am no expert but when you can do up to 20 reps with no fatigue it's time to up your weight for sure...I would recommend strength training every 2nd day... One day of weights, one day of cardio, just my 2 cents, because I believe that both are of equal importance...
