Advice on Strength Training, Fat Loss

Uh Ronnie Coleman…


The blokes got no delts, makes me feel better about myself :joy:

Ohhh, that Coleman.

Coleman is a character in Tim Dorsey novels. While I’m familiar with Ronnie Coleman, he’s certainly not a part of my daily cultural milieu.

Get I just ratted myself out.

Is he natty?

Oh no bro, he’s wickedly enhanced - stoned AF 24/7!

Apologies for interrupting your Coleman discussion but just wanted to say I purchased the Beyond 5/3/1 e-book and seen how much reading I have to do. If anyone has any suggestions as to where I should start I’d welcome that. But for now I fancied giving 5/3/1 Beach Body Challenge a go and then either repeating it or moving on to one of the programs in the book.

dude just get in the gym and do something

Start with PR sets followed with multiple FSL sets, then two assistance exercises for a total of 50 reps each.

I would recommend

Press day
Superset FSL sets with pull-ups, or fatman pull-ups if you can’t do pull-ups
Close grip or DB bench
Barbell rows

DL day
Front squats
Back raises supersetted with ab wheel rollouts or hanging leg raises

Bench day
Superset FSL sets with pull-ups/fatman pull-ups
Dips or incline DB or barbell press
DB rows

Squat day
Lunges or split squats supersetted with back raises
