    Quick question - I see a lot of folks swapping the front squats with deadlift / leg curls.

    Any particular reason? I have never done front squats but was planning on giving it a try tomorrow on my second day of the plan.

    Should I roll with deadlift and leg curls instead since I'm familiar with it? Or just learn the RDL and front squats and stick to the original program?

    Seriously though, do you keep at least 2 reps from failure to be sure. Or are you practiced in the art of "roll of shame".

    Guys, I can't do deadlifts or romanian ones because my doctor says my spine is not properly constructed for such movements. What should I do? Do I simply remove Romanian DL or do I replace it with something? What to replace with?

    That is a question for the physical therapist your dr advises. No one here is qualified to answer this question.

    Progression WILL be slower. You may have to add a few reps before you are able to up the weight.

    Day 1 3x5
    Day 2 3x6
    Day 3 3x7
    Day 4 3x8 add weight
    Day 5 3x5
    .. And so on. Use your best judgment on this. you may be able to go 3x5 for weeks before
    Needing to add reps at the same weight.

    You may find you need to work in a slightly higher rep range to begin with. Maybe 3x8 as base. Again i dont run db for my primary push so . Ymmv.

    Feel free to await more replies :-)

    Thanks mate, this is what I wanted to hear plus I much prefer using the dumbbell press so happy that it won't affect my gain too much. I have been going to the gym now for 6 years and although i am stronger I have never really noticed a big difference to my body shape and since giving up football have a bit of a gut i need to lose. I have been watching youtube to get to grips with front squat, rdl and pendleys which I have never done - i will start a bit lighter on these exercises. The other exercises I`m quite comfortable in. Im also going to throw in a metafit classTtuesday and Thursday for Cardio and stick with Fierce 5 for 6 months, hopefully I see a difference at the end.

    Thanks again.

    Stevie

    This thread is well beyond the size limit and is now closed.


    Any question you have about this program has already been asked a dozen times and already answered in this thread. If you spent a day or two reading the whole thread you'd have answers to hundreds of questions you didn't even know you had. If you REALLY want to make fitness part of your life you'll start there.
