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...

Exclamation Sticky Thread Sticky: Full Body vs. Split Routines - Which to Choose?

Full Body Routines vs. Splits The question often arises, especially from beginners, about what type of routine to use. Your buddy told you to use a full body routine, but the muscle mags suggest a 5-day "bodybuilder" split. You don't want to start off on the wrong foot, but there is so much...

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...

Upper/Lower Split Review please?

So an upper/lower split has to be the most versatile when it comes to working around strong and weak points. After a few hours of looking into my body etc (you know what I mean), I have devised this. I am aware that what works for one person, doesn't necessarily work for another hence why I...

uneven chest

for as long as ive been seriously working out, my left pec is significantly larger in mass than my right pec. ive tried a few things to even this out, but its mostly been futile. what id like to know is, would it be unwise to do a few sets on bench with 5 or so extra lbs on the right side?

Changing to a upper/lower split, thoughts?

For a while now, I've been doing the general 'brosplit' of 4-5 days a week doing the usual chest/tris, back/bis etc and have seen growth, however many people have said that a upper/lower split would work better for the stage I'm at. I've been lifting for about a year and a half now, as far as...

Hey Everyone! So I'm 19, 5 foot 8 inches and weight 55kg (121 pounds). I'd read online that those with a high metabolism such as me need to follow a different sort of workout regime as compared to those of a heavier weight since exercises focusing on fat cutting aren't appropriate for me. I get...

Building Muscle While Still Staying in Shape

So I am relatively new to lifting. So bear with me. A little over a year ago I started focusing more on building only. I was around 145. I lifted heavy and short. I did as much weight as I could at 5 reps in 3 sets. I ate chicken mainly and anything else like crazy. Every thing worked out...

How important is it to have rest days?

I mean days where you don't go to the gym at all. For example If I do Back and Bis on Monday, chest and tris on Tuesday, and legs and shoulders on Wednesday, can I just start back and Bis again on Thursday and continue indefinitely, or should I really have days where I don't go to the gym?

Would it be advisable to skip my upper day tomorrow after moving stuff into a house?

Moved a lot of heavy furniture, boxes, etc for a few hours today. Tomorrow was supposed to be a heavy upper day for me. I don't really feel tired, but obviously my muscles got worked today moving stuff. So am I better off sticking to my schedule or taking the day off?

Cut or keep bulking!

Thoughts? Progress pics should be in my profile. Currently 159lb and my weight scales say 17%bf (I know these can be inaccurate.) Know on reflection by diet needs cleaning up a bit. Pretty good for the most part, except the sugary snack bars and 1x a week food binges! Thanks.
