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: "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...

Possible to hit all muscle groups twice a week? Need feedback.

So, I've really gotten into weightlifting lately and I find great joy in creating my own schedules or workout plans. This is my latest, and it's an attempt at hitting each muscle group twice a week - every other week. This is my first time creating, or even trying out for that matter, a push/pull...

So the general thought is that for unenhanced people, because they won't be able to recover from such volume, it is said that frequent but moderate volume type training will yield better results. Whilst for the enhanced person, the ability to recover from workouts is greater, therefore they can...

Change programs every 4-6 weeks?

My friend says that his research says that you should change programs every 4-6 weeks because your body gets too used to a specific program quickly. As far as what I have learned in the last 3 years of lifting (which is longer than him), that it is just some goofy bro science. Is he right? I think...

Sometimes I read posts that seem to have a lot...
