    Hey Alain..
    I know i’m probably asking in the wrong place but i didn’t know where to do it, so here it goes:

    I’ve read the mass in a flash program and understood it all.. Just have one issue.. How much weight do i lift? I mean, is there any way to calculate how much weight i should use on each exercise? I’m a beginner at weight lifting and have no idea on how this aspect of it works..

    Thanks for the attention..

      You just lift the heaviest you can to get that set of 6,8,10,12 or however many in. There is no calculation for it just feel around and after a while your weight will be second nature. Just make sure that you are almost killing yourself to get the best and fastest results. So heaviest you can to finish that set. Hope this helps man.
