I've been weightlifting for about half a year now, full body, upper body one day, lower body the next. Generally, I've been doing ten reps/three sets with a minute cooldown. I feel I should either lower the reps and increase the weight, or cut down the cooldown.
I think for my purposes (I'm trying to build more muscle stamina than actual density, generally) I should cut down on the cooldown, unless that's a bad idea. I'm just trying to condition my muscles into dealing with longer strain (the motive for weight lifting is to run track, primarily the 400m dash). I figure I'll gain body weight at a modest clip (I've accrued ten lbs of what I have to assume is muscle since I've started working out), but generally, I'm just trying to make sure I keep to my routine, and add intensity tolerance.
I don't know about any of this fitocracy stuff, though.
