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.

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: "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...

What routine did you use as a beginner?

Since the narrative around here is full body x3 a week programs such as SL 5x5 or ICF. I'm wondering what did all you who recommend these programs as beginners did as beginners. I'm not saying these programs are bad for beginners bc I'm a beginner my self and I'm currently on one.

Variococele workout

Hey everyone. I've been diagnosed with a variococele a few days ago and of course it made me scared. From what I've heard working out with heavy weights can make it even worse.

Exclamation Opinions on my Upper/Lower Split for Strength

Hi guys, would like to hear your feedback on my upper/lower split. The main focus is to gain strength, but there is some hypertrophy/accessory work as I will be in a caloric surplus.
