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: 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...

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...

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...

Splitting Light and Heavy Days?

Hi. What do you guys think. Is it better to split up strength work for a few weeks and then hypertrophy. Or maybe weekly, Or is it best to try to do both strength and hypertrophy in the same workout / set. Thanks.

Fierce 5 - Deadlift Question

I’ve been doing deadlifts 3x5 as the program suggests, but lately it became pretty taxing to me. I’am currently at a 350 lbs 3x5 deadlift and my question is if I can do 1x5 instead of 3x5 for deadlifts therefore or not. ?
