Sticky Thread Sticky: The Viking's The Bare Bones Series

The big guy is back with another series of novice/early-intermediate routines - The Bare Bones programs - these are actually the first routines I made, just after I got my PT certification years ago.

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...

# of reps & sets for assistance exercises

I'm currently doing a 5x3 (strength focus) program for squat, ohp, and bench where you start at 80% of 1 rm and add 5lbs each week until you can't get 5x3; so for example if you only get 2 reps on the 5th set you still add weight the following week but only shoot for 4 sets of 3 reps. Do this until...
