Maybe you should read some books on this subject instead of relying on bro science. Modern bodybuilding encyclopedia gets into this, Natural bodybuilding guide gets into this, as well as many other books. I have quite the library, and these are some of the only points multiple science based books agree on.

Also, the Navy seal physical fitness guide they hand out to new recruits to teach them proper training methods in their down time covers this. They have those guys rotating rep counts every few month to go up as high as 50+ reps for muscular endurance without getting too heavy. Book was written by a group of military doctors who train people for a living. Ill trust that book over your opinion.

"Developed for Navy SEAL trainees to help them meet the rigorous demands of the Naval Special Warfare (NSW) community, this comprehensive guide covers all the basics of physical well being as well as advice for the specific challenges encountered in extreme conditions and mission-related activities. Topics covered include calculating energy expenditure; definitions, functions, and daily allowances of carbohydrates, fats, and protein; nutritional considerations for endurance and strength training activities; active recovery from injury; cardio-respiratory conditioning; appropriate gear for running and swimming for fitness; exercising in extreme and adverse weather; and more. Compiled by physicians and physiologists chosen for their knowledge of the NSW and SEAL community, this manual is a unique resource for anyone wanting to improve his or her health, strength, and endurance."

Do you really think these doctors are just guessing when they tell them to change rep counts to match desired results. Would you really trust a Reddit sub or mens bodybuilding magazine over what doctors are telling the most elite group of men in the world to do? Men who's lives rely on their training.

I have also used targeted lifting to cut fat from places I want fat gone from. Like high rep oblique crunches.

I'll also add, my gf of many years earned her doctorate at Cornell in molecular biology and studied nutritional biochemistry. She used to laugh at what a joke it is for people to split hairs on training and nutrition when they are no where near the elite level. Until you plateau a few times after years of training, many things people harp on that pros do are a waste of time and money for the average lifter.
