Fierce 5 and time under tension

Took the last year off from lifting due to various reasons that wouldn't allow me to dedicate enough time to my program. Anyways, I am starting back up and just about finished my new home gym. I decided to go back to the fierce 5 because I had a lot of success with it before I had to take a...

Testosterone Test Results came in today - total and free

I'm 36 and was diagnosed with T1 Diabetes last year and have been taking lantus insulin since Dec 16. My response was a hard turn on eating right, sleep 7-8 hours, and resistance training (p90x for 6 months then straight tradional lifting 5-6x/week). My motivation in general has been lacking...

Weak point balance training. Advice needed.

First sorry for the horrific spelling and grammar. I am a carpenter/engineer, not a English major. I know the profile says 47 but I am actually 36. Don’t know why that is so off. I will try to fix it. I have been back at it for about 1.5 years and have made great losses and gains. Lost...

When does acceptable momentum become swinging the weight?

On the bench or overhead press I'll accelerate the bar speed out of the bottom because I'm weaker there than towards the middle or top. On DB curls I'll do the same towards the middle since the leverage there is the poorest. I don't do this in a cheaty way though; there isn't any bouncing and my...

Using the same weight/reps

Hey all, This is a hypothetical question. What would happen if one got to the size/shape they were happy with and continued to use the same weights/reps without trying to progressively overload (i.e. increase the weight and/or reps) on their movements such as bulgarian split squat, deadlift,...

Cardio Bunny here. Body shape problems

Hey Everyone. This is my first post though I have been a lurker. I probably started the thread with the wrong title. I am/was a couch potato for the last 10 years that decided moving a bit more is a good idea and the easiest way I found without feeling overwhelmed is walking :) For the last...

More cardio but when ?

For about 2 weeks I've decided to add more cardio to my workouts in order to shed some fat and get more defined. I 'm used to splitting my cardio and do about 15' before and 15'/20' after my training. At first it worked quite well, but I'm wondering if I shouldn't reduced the length and intensity...

Over 40 and training 6 days a week.

Hi all. I used to train in my twenties and did a 18 set, one bodypart per workout routine with plenty of cardio. I got very good results from this. Life took over, had a child and stopped weight training all together after getting injured in a car accident. That was 10 years ago. I...

Back in the gym

I'm back in the gym after over a year off. I was doing the Fierce 5 dumbbell program with some success. I'm now going to an actual gym, Fitness 19, and have access to weights and equipment. I'm going to the gym 2-3 times a week with my girlfriend. We're doing the same routine, and I'd like...

About To Embark On First Cut

Hi all, I'm about to embark on my first cut after 11 months of trying to put on muscle. Over those 11 months my lifts have come along and I find my 1RM increasing on the big 3 lifts every 4-5 weeks and either upping my reps/weight on my isolations - progression has certainly been there. I'm...

Stalling a lot lately, there is a variety of reasons why this is happening, its all logical. After an 8-9 month campaign using 531 I have had some modest success with some new PRs in Mil press, dead-lift, bench press, (not on the squat). I learned during this time also how to manage my diet...and I...
