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: 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...

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...

I prefer to work out during my work hours due to my schedule, problem is I have to pick up calls when they come in which can last 15-20 minutes at times. Does this cause a negative impact if you stop for that long in the middle of a hard workout, cool down, and then restart again? On average this...

Post How to you guys feel about a Upper/Lower 6 day split?

The last year I've done PPLx5 and I love it but during the quarantine I switched to full body x3 and have seen great gains. I just hate doing legs with upper body. I'm thinking of taking the same amount of volume from my full body x3 and splitting it up into an upper / lower x6 split. Thoughts?

Exclamation Full body twice a week and upper once a week?
