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...

Let’s squat 10 million pounds!

... in 2018 Since no one has made a squat thread this year, I thought it would be cool to do something a little different. So instead of just counting reps, multiply your reps by the amount of weight lifted, then add your total to the previous total. I think this will be more interesting...

Question How much do people know about eccentric training?

Am I growing if I'm sore?

I know that you can still grow even if not sore. However...if I DO experience soreness, then are my muscles growing? Assuming my nutrition, sleep, stress, etc, are on point and assuming that I let a muscle group rest more than 72hours until I hit them again.

Strong Lifts. Want to incorporate pistol squats to fix hip shifts.

I am getting hip shift while doing squats. I suspect this is due to a pain in the left hip side where my quads and hip joins. On top of doing stretches and using a foam roller on that area, I'm thinking of doing pistol squats to resolve the issue. But my legs are really tired after doing 5x5...

Good workout for skinnyfat beginner?

Trying to bulk but I'm still a noob, is this a good workout for bulking? I feel like these 15 rep sets are insane, I have to lift such light weights to do them. Should I do pyramid sets instead? Any comments appreciated.

Fierce 5 or 5/3/1?

EDIT: The reason why I dislike compound lifts is because I have to slip in more exercises (for different muscle groups) into the same amount of time as I did for splits. So I'll end up putting less strain on let's say my chest for that day. I feel like it would cause less muscle soreness, but I...

What's most optimal routine with just these exercises?
