Default Is it possible to tone your muscles and gain mass at the same time?

I was just wondering whether this is true are not. Experts say that if you want to develop more muscle you should use smaller weights and more reps but for more mass you should lift heavier weights and less reps. Let's say for each week, on Monday you lift small weights for more reps but on Friday you lift heavy and lift less. Would I be able to develop more muscle and gain mass at the same time.( this only pertains to biceps and triceps, on Wednesdays I would work out abs so no lifting involved)

isnt "more muscle" the same as gaining mass?

But to be honest, you should do some of both. Instead of doing one per week, cycle them....change up the numbers of reps every 2-3 weeks.

Agreed! Do what works best for you. Everyone is different, you'll soon find out what type of rep/weight scheme your body reacts better too. For me, adding on my size this past year was pushing myself to the 8-10 rep range and using heavy weights. Depending on the body part - i would switch it up and go super heavy, focus on 4-6 reps. Usually only did that once or twice a month. And I usually mix in a good deload week too. Go light, give my body a break.
