Arnold Schwarzenneger's Basic Training Levels I and II

So I'm reading his Encyclopedia of Modern Bodybuilding, and it's kind of going against a lot of the things I've learnt. In the "power training" which is generally sets of 10, 6, 4 reps to failure. But he recommends 4 sets of each exercise for Training I. How ridiculous is that volume?...

5x5- shoulder pain when bench pressing

I started the 5x5 strength training about 3 months ago. I've made great gains, except for the bench press- I've actually gone backwards. Keeping in mind I've had rotator cuff surgery, as well as two suture anchors in my right shoulder. Push-ups and other exercises have always been a little...

Designed a workout routine, how can I improve it?

Been working out for just under a year now and have been training Fierce 5 Novice. Probably going to move over to the Fierce 5 Upper/Lower routine now but I ended up editing the upper/lower into my own five day routine. I doubt I'll end up using it but for self-improvement purposes here it is...

Most studies only compare strength and muscle gains, my main goal is not exactly any of these but the natural increase of testosterone. So what kind of training should I choose?

Smae Day Everyday Workout Routine

Hey Guys, I have a request for a program that was posted about 5 or 6 years ago. I want to say it was done by the METRX or Dymatize team, but it was a full body, same day, every day workout. I know this is a silly routine, but currently rehabing a shoulder. It was basically 2 sets of the same...

after you learn to squat, do you squat the same way without weight?

Althetic/bodybuilding hybrid program?

I looked all over and I couldn't find a decent athletic program that will also build hard full-body muscle. Can anyone find something better than I can? I'm looking for 5-6 days a week.

What do you think about single leg hip thrusts?

I’ve been considering to switch from Hip Thrust to unilateral version... 1. I can lift 160 kg. for 5/6 reps and I hate loading the bar. 2.
