    Default High Reps

    I have heard before that high rep sets are usless for stuff like strength however in some sports the time under tension is more similar in a 15-20 rep range than a 3-5 rep range. What I was wondering is high rep training(endurance) the same as muscle spinning, or is there a certain range where it switchs?

    Default High Reps

    I'd say after 10-12 reps, you're just focusing on endurance, and sure, you get a pump, but that does nothing for you (except build a little bit of sarcoplasmic hypertrophy). Now, if you want endurance, you can still do it with HEAVY weights. Take rest-pause training for example, or a 20 rep squat. You use some heavy weights, but you do multiple reps (above and beyond what you normally do) with that heavy weight. Hope I answered your question somewhat.

    Default For endurance, sometimes you have to do high reps.

    While I agree that rest-pause training is a good way to build a foundation of strength for strength-endurance, when all is said and done, you're still taking a "rest." Doing 20-25 reps all in a row as fast as possible provides a totally different stimulus and, IMO, is a necessary component for building strength-endurance.

    Default Ladders

    When done with little rest, low reps, and many sets, they are hard to beat in the strength and endurance department.

    Default Or

    The "puff and pant" clean and jerks with kettlebells. The velocity and deceleration provide real strength and endurance. Only a moderate load is required if the velocity is as fast as safely possible. The balistic quality is very important to real world strength endurance. zach_x@hotmail.com

    Default transfer...

    as per personal experence, i can say that endurance has always a certain ratio of transfer on maximal strength, but the opposite rarely works.
    is almost usual to test wrestlers or judokas, working on high volume push-ups, and discover that they can bench between 1.3 and 1.5 their bodyweight on bar. from my point of view, endurance builds that neuro-muscular linkage necessary to push over any limit. a further way to build this linkage is through high reps partial range work, as Paul Anderson used to do.
