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: The Viking's The Bare Bones Series

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: 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...

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...

33m/170 lbs...I'm a bit lost, need help on what I should be doing.

A couple years ago I was at 220 lbs. I dropped down to 160 lbs purely from diet changes and going to martial art classes 2-4x a week. Never lifted a weight or did any running. Here’s a key thing, my arms/legs were super skinny during my 220 lbs, so the entirety of the weight was mostly on my...

Not sure where to post this but what is normal when it comes to resting heart rate changes? For example mine ranges between 56-62. Should I be concerned when it goes up? Like is it related to overtraining?

Post How to you guys feel about a Upper/Lower 6 day split?

The last year I've done PPLx5 and I love it but during the quarantine I switched to full body x3 and have seen great gains. I just hate doing legs with upper body. I'm thinking of taking the same amount of volume from my full body x3 and splitting it up into an upper / lower x6 split. Thoughts?
