Has anyone ever heard of doing this? It was suggested to me that I do 3 sets of 25-30 reps to increase my metabolism, only for a couple of weeks.

I think it's a dumb idea.

How does it increase metabolism? It doesn't.

It just burns calories since that kind of higher rep training results in greater energy expenditure. But on a diet? No point. At least in my opinion.

What builds muscle, keep muscle, and 30 reps doesn't build it.

I assumed the person that told me this knew what he was doing. I was wrong. The second week of doing this I started doing drop sets because I was so bored.

I think doing thirty reps for multiple sets would bore me to death. :laugh:

No. Not to tone. I think it was supposed to be more of a holding phase until he could help me with my workouts. I'm hoping to hear from him in the next 24 hours.

If that was his suggestion ... I'd be running to another trainer.

I know, I'm afraid to hear what his other suggestions will be! I don't get it though, the guy is built like a Mack truck.

Maybe cause I'm a girl and he don't think I can handle it.

Just because someone is "built" doesn't mean they know what they're doing, or implement what they're doing with their clients.

There's also vitamin S. ;)

That doesn't mean a thing.

So in two weeks how much damage, as far as muscle loss have I done? Will it most likely take me two weeks to regain to where I was at?

Conjugate training is good. Maintain what you have, build what you need. End of story.
