Sticky Thread Sticky: "Fierce 5" Novice Routine

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...

Does Cardio make you lose muscle or not?

I want to know of this is a myth or truth. A gym rat told me it does. When he does his cut he swears by no cardio. The guy is huge when he is ripped. So obviously you don't need it for cutting. So why do it at all, especially if you risk losing muscle? You already lose a bit from...
