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: 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...

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: Am I overtraining?

In response to this question, asked several times per day in this forum, consider this: Due to a large number of variables from one trainee to the next, no one can look your written routine and declare it "overtraining" or "too much." Instead of posting your routine in all it's detail while...

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 Advice on Restarting

I went to the gym at least six days a week in my early 20s. I logged my diet and every rep or cardio session. I had a personal trainer to help me develop the lifting program and push me in the gym. Fast forward. I'm approaching 40, sit at a desk 10 hours per day, and eat fast food at least...

Back is Sore from Pull Day so I can't do Romanian Deadlifts on Leg Day

So yesterday was my pull day and I actually hit my back pretty good. Really focused on mind muscle connection with pull ups and I could just tell the feeling I got immediatley after the sets that I was going to get crazy DOMS the next day. Today is the next day and indeed my lower back is quite...

Switch Routine on a Cut?

Been running fierce 5 novice while bulking for 5 months now and started cutting 4 weeks ago. Workouts and progression have been decently more difficult since then.

why are some of the exercises on fierce 5 only 5 reps?

I was under the impression that a 5 rep scheme was more for strength gains and less for hypertrophy? are the exercises that are only 5 reps not for muscle building? I noticed that some of the exercises have more reps than that of course. I figure the program was probably for both so maybe that's...
