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...

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...

Next Workout?

Hi. I did AllPro last year for about 10 months. Currently I am on week 6 into Fierce 5 Beginner. I think possibly 3-5 more months and I should be done. I wonder what should I do next to increase my muscle gains ? I can train only 3 days a week. What would be best bang for a buck in my situation?...

Legs and triceps same day

I Really want to fit in 3 day routine a week. The thing with the leg day is that i barely have energy for anything else, so i'm thinking pairing it with legs as it's easiest muscle group to do.

Planning on running 5/3/1 BBB. Can anyone clarify these questions for me?

1) In my 2nd edition of 531, Wendler lists the exercises as "3 sets of 5" followed by 5 sets of 10. Are the 3x5 sets the 5/3/1 sets (i.e. 65%-95%) but without the AMRAP? I'm already aware that the percentages doesn't matter for the 5x10 as long as you go light enough to complete your reps. 2)...
