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...

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...

Bulking with Fierce5 + MMA, good results so far, but is it sustainable?

For the past 3 months or so, I've been bulking up with the Fierce5 program while also doing MMA 2-3 days a week. I've been gaining a little over a pound a week, sometimes a lot more which I need to tone back on. Also making consistent strength gains. However, I'm reading everywhere that bulking...

After a break what type of workout is it best to begin with again

After 2 weeks of break, I read there's a considerable lost of strength, so I was wondering this: after coming off 2 weeks of no gym, would it be better to start again with my usual strength workout (4 sets of 5 heavy reps) on the first day, or an hypertrophy workout (4 sets of 10 lighter reps)?
