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...

Question Fierce 5: switching to upper/lower or not? What else?

Hi all, after 13 months of beginner program, I decided to switch. I was sticking to it after all this time because 3 days per week was ideal (I also play volleyball twice per week).

Will I lose strength for skipping a workout week?

Last week, on Friday, I pulled a back muscle doing Squats for 3x6 180. As of today, it still has not healed, and I don't think it will heal for a few more days. Will I still be able to do 180 for 6 reps when I get back to doing squats?

Let’s squat 10 million pounds!

... in 2018 Since no one has made a squat thread this year, I thought it would be cool to do something a little different. So instead of just counting reps, multiply your reps by the amount of weight lifted, then add your total to the previous total. I think this will be more interesting...
