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...

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: 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...

How has your training evolved over your lifting career?

I was recently watching a pod cast on Layne Nortons training and how it had evolved. His experience seemed similar to mine. I’ve always gone by ability to complete the work outs. After a layoff I was small and weak and could breeze through full body 3-4 times per week. As time went on I wasn’t...

I don't think a leg press stated weight is the actual weight your legs are pushing.

So my small town gyms calf raise machine broke. I still wanted to do calf raises so I started setting the leg press machine on the highest chair position and putting the top half of my feet on the bottom of the plate. I kept raising the weight because it felt too easy. Then I finally decided to try...

I’d run 3 upper days and 2 lower days. The idea is that I could get more out of my...
