Bodybuilding and heavy weights normally go hand in hand. The kind of hardcore massive weight that is conjured when thinking about stereotypes of bodybuilders. But for as long as bodybuilding has existed – people have debated whether or not you really need to lift heavy weight. One big reason for this debate is that lifting heavy weight constantly can lead to injuries – especially as you get older. But will you lose muscle mass for switching to light weight?

Well there is catch that many might not follow – leading to the misconception that you need to lift heavy. Get the straight facts in our episode above!
