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: 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...

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...

Arm day

Anyone give arms a separate day? I'm usually a push/pull/legs type of person, but switching it up to a 4 day split. It's going to be push-pull-arms-legs and see how it goes with just an arm day.

Tracking sets and reps?

As far as hypertrophy goes, do you / should you track every rep of every set? IF you are training close to failure within the 3-30 (or say 6-15 to narrow it down a bit) rep range and IF everything else is in order (sleep/nutrition/recovery in general), shouldn't you naturally be progressing in...

Weight increase vs rep increase for hypertrophy?

Hello everyone, Is it better to increase the weight or the reps for hypertrophy? For example if I bench 90kg x10x3 one workout, is it better for growth to try and do 90kg x12x3 or to go for 95kg for 8x3? Thank you
