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...

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...

Full body, pull, full body, push etc

What do you think of this split? Day 1 Full body Day 3 pull Day 5 full body Day 7 push Day 9 full body etc I'm doing this for more variety. Also, it covers each body part approximately 2.5 times per week which is probably a good frequency

Anyone here like the concept and way Mike Israetel construct mesocycles for hypertrophy?

How many steps do you take per day?

Just wondering if everybody kept track of their step count or how far they walk each day & what it is. I tend to walk around 7 miles per day on average with the lockdown and I don't really know my step count. Are you all walking more or less with the shutdown?

Taking Fierce 5 Seriously

First off, good morning ladies and gents... So I’ve finally chosen to take F5 seriously. For the longest, it seems as if the program was too light — something that I honestly can say that I shouldn’t have judged while being completely ignorant of what’s “right.” That said, I’m going to try to...

Hello! I've recently started going to the gym again after a very long break (over 10 years). Back then, almost everyone was training with a 3-split or 4-split program, so that each muscle group was trained only once per week. However, now I've been observing some guys in the gym train the...
