Sticky Thread Sticky: The Viking's The Bare Bones Series

The big guy is back with another series of novice/early-intermediate routines - The Bare Bones programs - these are actually the first routines I made, just after I got my PT certification years ago. So I pulled them out of the graveyard, dusted them off and made a few tweaks and improvements to...

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: 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...

Hey boys I have been doing 5x6 for about 3 months now and had great gains but unsure if would be any diffrence if I did 5x5 and that extra rep may be lowering my potential gains? I know 1 rep doesent sound like much but with progressive overloads it may be I possibly could upgrade weights...

Bro split recommendations?

So I have spent years bulking/cutting doing Strong lifts and 531. I feel like I have just gone in circles to be honest. I have certainly gained a little muscle but based on the amount of time spent, I can't say that I am happy. I am kind of tired of doing the same compound lift based workouts and...

which is better: higher weight for less reps or mid weight for more reps?

what do you think is better for aesthetics, using higher weight for less reps or a smaller (middle) amount of weight for more reps? Why do you think so?

High frequency full body is best imo

Got this idea from Eric Helms who trains full body 5x a week and Jeff Nippard recently started doing the same as well. I've been doing an upper/lower split 4x a week for the longest and just switched over to full body 4x a week. I used to do the standard full body 3x a week before that, but each...
