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...

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

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...

*The push pull legs thread*

And why it sucks. Top 5 reasons in response to the daily PPL threads. 1. You don’t need 6 days in the gym or 3 days in a row 3 on/1 off. You’re stressing your body more than you have to for nothing. Research connective tissue because I’m not getting into it here. I know you’re the special...

1RM% for hypertrophy

Is there a low-end cap on what % of your one rep max is efficient for adding mass? I read something... somewhere... at some point in time... that the number sits somewhere around 60%, but admittedly I have no idea where I read it. If you can bang out up to 40 reps and still induce hypertrophy,...

Are natural recovery limitations exaggerated?
