When you check out the reps in my program try your best to stick to not only the reps but the weight coz there are specific reasons.
(1) low rep/heavy weight - the reps of 3 with your absolute max weight you can lift (if you have dumbbells heavy enough) will crank your heart rate up to begin the calorie burning but also engage different muscle fibers than you would in the 10-15 rep range. It'll also help improve your strength which'll help you push through the future workouts.
(2) the 8-15 rep ranges will engage different muscle fibers to the one above to keep shocking your body into growth. That way it'll help you maintain muscle while burning fat. Very useful for the army?!
(3) the 25 rep range will engage your third muscle fiber group again shocking your body.
If you get the weight correct in each workout you'll be sweating by the time you finish and your heart rate will be elevated. Then it's time to hit the cardio where you'll put your fat burning into overdrive!
