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. So I pulled them out of the graveyard, dusted them off and made a few tweaks and improvements to...

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: 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...

Why not do more exercises?

Squats below parallel with rounded lower back vs squats slightly above parallel

It is impossible for me to keep my spine neutral once my squat reaches parallel. In order to keep a neutral spine I have to squat slightly above parallel. This happens when I even squat without any weights so it is not related to weight. I read that this lower back rounding is due to weak...

Balancing chest and back work?

Bit of a noob question, but how important is it to balance horizontal pushing vs pulling as opposed to just chest vs back work? I like the look of the below program, but unlike most full body programs you do a bench variant on both days. There's only a horizontal pull on one day, so I wondered...
