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...

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...

Quick and dirty guide to intermediate progression

This guide assumes that you have already chosen a "split" and some core exercises at the least - plus the number of sets per exercise (start on the low end of the amount of volume you think you need). This is an autoregulated volume approach best suited for hypertrophy (credit: Menno Henselmans)...

Removing load vs. doing less reps when stalled

In the face of a stall, which do you find more effective: removing 10% or so from the bar or knocking reps back down to the lowest end of your range? Which method is better suited to allow for somewhat of a period of recovery? I say somewhat because we’re assuming that regular deloads are already...
