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...

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: 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...

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...

What's your squat to deadlift ratio?

I'm squatting 140 kg for 4 reps and have at least 2 or maybe 3 reps left in the tank. When I deadlift I can do the same, but the fourth repetition really takes me a lot of effort and I even have to take like 5 seconds prior to it. I'm 6 feet tall and I weigh 84 kgs. I feel like my deadlift should...

What’s the worst fitness advice you’ve gotten?

I’m new to weightlifting/fitness and I’m building up a regiment. I have a pretty good idea of what to do, but obviously there’s a ton of misinformation out there. What is some of the stupid/blatantly wrong crap you’ve heard before, and what is the actual truth?
