I took a class at the Y last week where the instructor had us do pyramid training.... we focused on all different muscles... biceps, triceps, shoulders, etc...
she had us get three sets of weights, light, medium, and heavy and we did 12 reps of light, 10 medium, 8 heavy, then 10 medium again, and 12 light.
my arms were killing me the next day which made me think pyramid lifting is more effective than doing just three sets at the same weight
so i need to know from people who know (cause i'm clueless) will this get results faster than just doing like 3 sets at a heavy weight?
i really want toned arms!
thanks in advance
