Sticky Thread Sticky: Beginner Powerbuilding Routine

I was asked about this by someone else, so I thought I'd share. I’m not a professional trainer, and although I do have a background in exercise physiology I have never worked in the field nor been up to date with it for the past 8 years. So you can do this if you wish, but if you get busted up, not...

FIERCE 5 I decided to design "Fierce 5" because I wasn't completely satisfied with any of the other novice programs that are so popular. In my opinion they all had a flaw or two (slow progression, high volume, low enough volume people lose interest and most of them lack what I’d consider proper...

TUT question

So I'm switching it up and going for 8 reps REALLY slowly, like 5-6 seconds per rep. It's ****ing brutal! My goal is to build muscle.

Cut/bulk phase?

Let's say you get back into working out, and you've put on a few pounds. You're about 25% body fat, almost exactly. You choose to bulk, and you bulk for 3 months and move up to 27% body fat. Then you cut from 27% down to 12%. Is that a fair decision? I have heard from others that if you're above...
