Default Re: Weight Training - is there any point?

and since you specifically mentioned your arms and chest, you might as well go ahead and at least do some higher reps, like 8 or 10, for at least 3 sets, on the bench, or with dumbbells, or flies, just stretch enough. I don't think that extremely low rep number you are doing is going to recruit a lot of the slow twitch fibers to work and "grow", nothing wrong with hitting more where you want to see results, as long as you still maintain flexibility and train for movement. I would just stop lifting two weeks before you have a match if you ever plan on competing.
