Nicko: It has been said that low rep schemes (5-8) show results better and high rep schemes (8-12) help you lift more. Of course, both of them do both jobs, it has just been noted that if you are trying to look good for the ladies then do less and if your trying to put more weight on the bar do more.
I do ussually do 3x8. The less reps you do, the more sets you do and vice versa.
However, it should be noted that one should not have the same rep-set scheme indefinetly. Along with your exercises, this should change up to shock your muscles.
Multiple People: I only take Whey Protein Powder, which (for those of you who dont know) is basically JUST protein, nothing more. Sadly, my parents arent as fond as my passions as I am and so they wont let me take Creatine, or else I would.
Wiired: I haven't done a one rep max in a long time. I am not very fond of them because to me it seems like a wasted day at the gym. After doing a one rep max you are extremely tired, yet, you hardly accomplished a workout. I can do 155x8. I'm telling you guys that I'm not all that strong but you refuse to believe me
Wow, this thread hit off better then I'd expected. I was thinking It'd get a couple posts and then die. Keep posting guys.
