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...

Sticky Thread Sticky: Training for STRENGTH vs. SIZE

MYTH: Low reps is for strength, high reps is for size. Although this contains a grain of truth, it leads to wrong thinking - the classic problem we get on this forum is the legion of novices who don't want to do novice routines because they contain 5 rep sets ... which are "for strength" not...

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...

The SIMPLE truth about “progression”

You go in the gym. You pick up the 20 lb dumbbells for a warmup….no reason for choosing the 20s other than they are “light” and you can warmup without tiring your arms. After admiring yourself in the mirror and sending a couple of texts, you grab the 35s and knock out 12 reps. No reason for...

workout for beginners

WORKOUT FOR BEGINNERS You want to get fit. But you don't want to join a health club -- it's too expensive, there's no gym convenient to you, or maybe you're just the independent type. Or perhaps you're already a gym member, but your schedule has been too manic for you to getaway. That leaves...

Alpha Destiny 185 lbs to 145 lbs

I thought this was a pretty cool video. I’m not big into YouTube fitness but I do like this channel. Alex benched 405 at 185 lbs last year and just got done cutting to 145 lbs at around 7 percent body fat. I do believe that he is natural. He is a prime example of why you don’t need crazy volume or...
