Thoughts on Program

I am coming off a powerlifting routine in about a month, so I wanted to avoid the SBD competition lifts and do some different stuff when I finish. Also, I’m trying to get a little more athletic and well rounded while still focusing on strength. I tried to throw in a handful of strongman movements....

Full Body vs Split: what is less taxing on central nervous system?

Let's say I would do one time full body workout per week, would it be more, less or equal taxing on the central nervous system than doing push/pull/legs with exactly the same volume?

Lower reps more likely to build imbalances?

Is there any correlation between lifting at higher intensities/lower reps and an increased likelihood of developing asymmetries? I’ve done 8+ reps for the majority of my training but this year was the first time I started training with higher intensities in the 3-5 rep range and I’m noticing...

Creating Intermediate Program

What do you think about the below intermediate workout for a 46 year old male doing a recomp? I know I can get a proven workout, so think of this as a mental exercise to cure the COVID boredom.

Snatch grip VS deficit deadlift

Any substantial advantages/disadvantages between these two? I get they both achieve better stimulus/fatigue ratios than normal deadlifts by increasing ROM and reducing weight. To me it seems deficits may be more dangerous if the object you’re standing on slips beneath you but that’s all that comes...

Please explain "speed work" for PHAT.

For PHAT, could you please explain "speed work": On your hypertrophy days you should do some speed work (6-8 sets of 3 reps) with 65-70% of your 3-5 rep max to start your workout with the power exercise you used earlier in the week. from:...

What size plates should I be using for deadlifts?

I just noticed that the plates I’m using for deadlifts are approximately 350mm in diameter. Is this too short and basically a deficit deadlift? Just wondering what height the plates should be off the ground so I can increase it with mats or something. Thanks.

Hi, im doing a full body routine. Im getting very fast progression on my legs and back but quite slow on the rest (arms, chest, abs). Is it genetics that certain muscle groups are more prone to develop or should i try a new fullbody program?
