Selecting the Best Weights to Start Lifting

The most difficult part of selecting a weight is finding that happy medium. Something that isn’t too light to where you don’t feel like you are working out at all, but something that isn’t so heavy that you barely get any reps in. I personally believe that until you become a more experienced lifter should you look into these two other options. For the most part, hypertrophy, the increase in size of muscle cells, is most commonly characterised and recognised by staying in a routine that consists of 8 - 12 reps for 3 or 4 sets.
