That's a lot of reps. What made you think up this workout?

It's always worth bearing in mind, the best workout plan is the one that you actually do. If cranking out 100 reps is what it takes to keep you interested, go for it.

Unlikely with just one set to failure. If anyone's really worried limit yourself to 50 reps.

High reps are awesome. I train most exercises for 3x20, 1 min.

Little and often is a great way to go for calisthenics. I often "pay a toll" whenever I walk down the stairs by doing pull ups off the landing of the next floor up. Regularly doing this got be from 4 poor reps to 12 good ones.

Do 3x20, 1 min squats with about 50% 1RM. Your legs will grooooooooow.

But all this would do (apart from hospitalising yourself) is to grow mass. Why would you even bother if your strength stays low? I may look like a scrawny fucker but I am damn straight I am stronger. Smaller, heavy duty, muscles are the way forward, surely?

Sorry, I mean size, but not strength.

Anecdotal, but a while away I was helping a pensioner move house. He is my build but a former body builder. He had a 200 kilo weight machine on the 4th floor. I helped him move with 30 odd lads whose arms were the size of my thighs. We were the only two not to bitch. I spent maybe half an hour holding that weight at the bottom of a flight of stairs before they realised I wasn't resting it.

Diminishing returns and all that.
A certain amount of weight-lifting will improve your strength a lot, but once you get to a certain point you have to gain more and more mass for less and less gains in strength.

A modest amount of lifting is also good for your health too. You improve your insulin sensitivity, improve your bone density, boost your serotonin production slightly etc. In fact, if you want to live a long time, lifting weights once a fortnight might be better for you in the long term than going for a run every day.

Yep. It doesn't really matter too much what number of reps you do. Just keep adding weight to the bar and your muscles will get bigger and stronger.

I guess that's why years of tugging myself senseless have given my right arm such a defined musculature.

I remember a lassm8 laughing at one of my ladm8s for the dramatic and visible difference in the musculature of his right forearm.

Lifting weights masks this a bit. Another good reason to lift, aye?

Is there any way to look at the typical lengths of youtube videos? The statistics/analytics. It's just that it seems like a significant number of them are 4:20 or one second off. I want to know if I'm imagining it.

I recall somewhere that the analytics show pretty clearly that more people tend to 'like' or 'upvote' or whatever on videos that are around that length. It's great research if you enjoy pandering to the broadest possible demographic and producing nothing of real value.

Sorry but I may have completely imagined this. Google reveals people echoing the sentiment of a 3 - 4 minute maximum, but I didn't see any obvious results pointing to general research on why.

You have to increase the resistance to build muscle. Doing 100s of reps with a fixed weight won't do much.

Pick a weight you can only do 10 reps with and force yourself to get 50. Take as many rest pauses as you need, just get those 50 reps even if it takes you 15 minutes.

When you can do the first 20 reps without taking any rests add enough weight to take you back down to just 10 continuous reps and begin again.

Do this with just the chin up, dip and squat 1-2 times a week to begin with. Add more exercises as you get comfortable with the workout.

I feel better now. I think I pushed myself a bit to hard. The last 10 reps or so my muscles started going numb.

I've found its a good way to get into exercise. Once you've developed a base level of fitness and/or enthusiasm for exercise you can move on to bigger and better things.
