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...

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...

Question Is it true you go catebolic if doing more than 60 min cardio?

Or is it an incorrect myth. An article says "if you're not a distance runner, anything over 60-70 minutes per day is likely counterproductive" and "performing too much cardio will put your body in a catabolic state and burn hard-earned muscle." I want to really speed up my cut, on the...

Post Rate my workout for Size and strength

Noteworthy: - The weights for the exercises are set heavy so that I can only possibly push out the reps given, and no more. - All exercises have a 3-minute rest period unless otherwise stated. - Warm-up before all days is static stretching, ~70 high knees and ~70 heel kicks. - Cool-down after...
