That rep range is fine IMO. Sometimes if I go heavy on my 3rd set I will do a drop set where I drop the weight and go to failure to get a few more reps in. Keep in mind though that a muscle can only do two things. It can grow or it can shrink... it can't "tone," but you can go for a toned look with some decent muscle mass and low bf%. To get like a huge mofo you have to lift heavy and eat like an animal. Diet is just as important as training when it comes to hitting your goals.

Less than 10% bf is pretty ripped... like nice, defined 6 pack ripped. I can't wait to get there. I'm guessing two more months
