File 148656902329.jpg - (62.52KB , 253x455 , Robin-Shou-robin-shou-21616318-253-455.jpg )

I've come here for one reason. I've looked and can't find an answer, so, i need advice. And, I'm not quite desperate enough to go to the..."other" place.
Long story short, former fatfuck here. I've lost almost 8 inches from the gut, and nearly 80 lbs. I'm thinking now of my goals. I want to be stronger. Not powerlifting strength, but stronger than average. I've heard low rep ranges (maximul effort, 5 reps) does this, btmut does little for size, as this recruits the body to better utilize what it has. High reps (13+) are endurance, and 7-10 for hypertrophy. I want more size, but not too much. The look and general idea I'm going for is your typical martial artist of film, such as Shou, picture attached. If I'm right in my theory, on a full body workout,3x/week if two of these are low reps, and one is median, this should effectively do what i want, correct? Mostly strength, but still enough to get me the size I desire? Also, i know this may make a difference, I've switched to (and plan to continue) a ketogenic diet, i know people may bring up carbs. Just can't eat em. At any rate, am i correct in my theory, or is something amiss?

Stay with the medium to high reps and focus more on form and isolating the muscles your working. Increase your protein intake to match your lean body mass. On picture/selfie day dehydrated the shit out of yourself so the muscle definition is more prominent.

So, is this all I'm going to get? Nobody actually giving any assistance?

its best you keep to higher reps, you will still be stronger than average but with healthy bones and joints.

Low rep training is not a good start. And by start I mean - having under 5 years of serious lifting.

Form is very important and every bber out there is stronger than average while keeping in 8-12 rep range. Once you are over 15 reps you can add.

3 times a week might me too much to recover. Consider having A and B workouts and cycling between them every other day in total 3 per week. A B A B A B
