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.

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...

Brusing on neck after squats

Guys, there’s visible brusing on my neck after I started doing squats. I know that I screwed up my form as I can feel the bar resting against my neck instead of my traps, the issue with me is that I’ll get the form right at first, however during the 2nd or 3rd rep, the bar tends to slide forward...

How many reps can I do?

I know how many reps I want to do, but I'm not really sure what a rep even is. If I really strain and kill myself, and give it absolutely all I've got, I can squeeze out a rep or two extra. My form might be OK, but I'mreally slow. I can also imagine how I could injure myself lifting just so much...

Quick and dirty guide to intermediate progression

This guide assumes that you have already chosen a "split" and some core exercises at the least - plus the number of sets per exercise (start on the low end of the amount of volume you think you need). This is an autoregulated volume approach best suited for hypertrophy (credit: Menno Henselmans)...
