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: "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...

Sets - Just How Many?

Thought I'd start a thread. Sets, just how many are really beneficial. First time at the gym? I recommend no more than two sets at each station. Build yourself up to three, shouldn't take more than a few weeks. Once you've reached 3 sets it's time to set your goal to 5 sets. Five sets, hmph,...

What does 3x 8-10 reps mean?

A simple question. When a program suggests that I do an exercise 3x 8-10 reps, does that mean that I never move out of that reprange or does that mean that the first set should be 8-10 reps? As I see it it could mean one out of three things: 1. If I start an exercise with 10 reps and aim to get...
