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.

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...

I believe Mike Israetel says to increase intensity (% of 1RM and reps from failure) week to week along with volume (amount of sets per body part). So it would look something like this: Week 1: 10 sets @ 70% of 1RM (4 reps from failure) Week 2: 12 sets @ 72.5% of 1RM (3 reps from failure) Week...

Quick question

Will I get smaller on a 6 week strength programme? Where my legs back chest and shoulders are being trained in the 5-6ish sorta range. I know it'll be worth it In the long run, but just wondering as I thought 8-12 reps is most appropriate to stimulate hypertrophy.
