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...

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...

Where to go from StrongLifts 5x5?

I've been lifting on and off for over a year using StrongLifts 5x5 - taking a few months out for a lower back injury last year - I'm making no progress at all, although some of this has to be due to poor form and so in turn the fear of injury, but I just don't think SL works for me. I've...
