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...

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...

A warning: when it comes to the abs exercises below, you'll want to get comfortable with the feeling of being uncomfortable. Despite nothing hurting as much as the day after you blitz your core in the gym, the results are always worth the aches and pains. Abs, you see, are much more than...

In terms of grip development and maximizing forearm size? Same goes for knee sleeves and belt. Not sure if I should utilize these things long term. I do notice they make exercises easier.

Bench Press foot set up - heels elevated or flat feet?

Just wondering what everyone’s preferred foot set up is on the bench press. For some reason I find it’s more stable and I get more leg drive when on my toes (heels up) as opposed to feet flat on the ground. Which do you recommend as the better set up?
