So you can do this if you wish, but if you get busted up, not...

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...

Optimal training volume?

I've read that the ideal training volume is 60-120 reps a week for large body parts, and 30-60 reps for smaller body parts per WEEK. Is this WORKING reps (not including warmups) or TOTAL reps? I've always trained with high volume and increased the weight with each set to the top weight Thanks!
