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...

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: Am I overtraining?

In response to this question, asked several times per day in this forum, consider this: Due to a large number of variables from one trainee to the next, no one can look your written routine and declare it "overtraining" or "too much." Instead of posting your routine in all it's detail while...

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...

Is 1 hour in the gym per workout enough?

So thanks to the forum members I have found out that my work out routine isn't very good. I've been going to the gym 7 days a week partly because I only have about one hour a day I can devote to the gym. As I'm redesigning my work out program I'm wondering how much of a problem only 1 hour is if...

ULPPL to U/L

I’ve been running a ULPPL for a couple years now and I’d say it’s been working decently well, but I wonder if I could get a little bit more out of a full-on upper/lower with equivalent or possibly even more volume. I’d run 3 upper days and 2 lower days. The idea is that I could get more out of my...

Do You See a Difference???

The first picture I'm 205lbs and the second & third picture I'm 220lbs, my height is 6'0 I think I look bigger & wider up top (shoulders) and more cut in the second picture but this could be just in my mind.

Barbell Row/Bench Superset Warm Up Question

I'm gonna be programming barbell rows superset with barbell bench for a while and see how it goes, from both a time efficiency standpoint and the theory that Brian Alsrhue used in one of his old barbell row videos of it carrying over to his bench in that order (I'll see how it goes for myself). ...

Impact of breaking your routing

Hi everyone, I have been lifting weights for 10+ years and I finally built a body that I wanted. Now I am kind of thinking what else I can do to become stronger. I noticed a significant improvement during the last ~1.5 years, when I gained around 10 kg and pushed my 1RM in all big moves by 20 -...
