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: 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...

So I'm just starting out and need to increase my strength and muscle mass. I'm considering doing the stronglifts 5x5 program. It looks tough but apparently it's supposed to work.

Question Fix a lot of problems with my workout

6'4" and struggling to put on the (right) weight

Long story short, I feel like I am putting in either way too little effort, or the wrong effort. I am 6'4" 220, with 16% BF. Trying to get that in 8-9% range. I don't want to be a body builder or a runner, more along the lines of an NBA guard body type. I guess that is what everyone wants. I...

Better beginner bulk workout
