Programa de entrenamiento: Fierce 5

Introducción

Fierce 5 está compuesto por 5 ejercicios simples (superseries combinadas) que deberían tomar en hacerse apenas un poco mas de una hora, incluyendo el calentamiento y los estiramientos. Es un entrenamiento pensado para tres dias de entrenamiento no consecutivos a la semana, alternando entre plan A y B. Por ejemplo Lunes-A, Martes-Descanso, Miercoles-B, Jueves-Descanso, Viernes-A, Sabado-Descanso, Domingo-Descanso, Lunes-B… etc. Cada semana le agregas 2,5kgs a todos los ejercicios de la parte superior del cuerpo (espalda, brazos, hombros, etc) y 5 kilos a los de la parte inferior del cuerpo (piernas)*.

*Con excepcion del ejercicio de vuelos invertidos que solo sube 2,5kg por mes y nunca deberías aumentar mas de 7,5kg por mano si usas DB. Los Isquitibiales (leg curl) van a subir 2,5kg por semana. Abdominales aumenta solo en repeticiones. Si no podes mantener el ritmo de aumento de pesos por limitaciones del equipo que usas entonces, solo para esos ejercicios que no puedas, aumenta el peso cada otra semana. Para los ejercicios con 5 repeticiones, agrega una repeticion por serie en las semanas en las que no aumentes el peso. Para los ejercicios de 8 a 15 repeticiones, agrega 2 repeticiones por serie en esas semanas donde no aumentas el peso.

Calentamiento

Antes de los ejercicios combinados (Sentadilla, Banco plano, Remo, Sentadilla frontal, Banco inclinado, Peso muerto y Traccion de pecho con polea alta) tenes que hacer antes por lo menos una serie de calentamiento. A medida que pasen los meses vas a empezar a agregar peso a la barra y eso va a requerir tambien que le agregues mas series de calentamiento a algunos de los demas ejercicios.

Por ejemplo para hacer una Sentadilla con 70kg, te conviene hacer por lo menos una serie con 40kg para calentar. Pero si la Sentadilla es de 160k es mejor calentar con 80, 110 y 135kg. El precalentar le sirve a tus musculos para que se preparen para el trabajo; nunca te deberían cansar. Esto quiere decir que si vas a trabajar con 25kg, deberías calentar con la mitad (25kg) como máximo (en general).

Estiramiento

No son oibligatorios, pero te van a ayudar a mantenerte saludable y sin lesioes. No toman mucho tiempo y son espectaculares para mantener y mejorar tu postura y mobilidad. Yo los hago directamente al terminar cada entrenamiento.


Preguntas frecuentes

¿Para quien es este programa?

Fue diseñado para aquellos que no han tenido mucho entrenamiento estructurado. Cualquiera con menos de 6 meses de entrenamiento dedicado. Incluso si estuviste entrenando por uno o dos años, a menos que hayas estado entrenando intensamente, de forma consistente y con un programa decente mientras comias correctamente, es probable que logres obtener buen progreso con esta rutina.

¿Cuanto tiempo debería seguir este programa?

Segui este programa hasta que termines meseteando* en por lo menos dos ejercicios principales (Banco, Remo, Sentadillas, Peso Muerto) mientras creces (bulking). En promedio serían 4 a 6 meses para alguien así. No recomiendo pasar a un programa mas intenso si estuviste cortando (cutting) mientras hacias este programa.

*Hablo de realmente no poder avanzar mas, o sea despues de haber descargado un 15% o de tomarte hasta una semana de descanso, y luego haber vuelto a incrementar pesos pero realmente no podes superar tu meseta.

¿Qué hago si fallo en alguna serie?

Si fallas un ejercicio dos dias seguidos entonces bajá el peso un 15% para ese ejercicio (solo ese)

What do I do if I fail on my sets? If you fail a lift two days in a row then drop the weight 15% for the lift you are failing (reset.) This is a good time to work on form since the weight is a bit lighter again. Form can make or break your lift. You will still be growing with lighter weight. If you don’t reduce weight you will likely get slower results.

What program should I run after this one? There are a handful of programs I advise, but a natural progression would be to move to the Upper/Lower routine found here Fierce 5 Comprehensive Thread.

I’m a man/woman and I plan on cutting/bulking. Does that change whether or not I should run this program? For bulking males this program is perfect. Progression(weight increases) needs to be modified for cutting males and bulking females. I would advise running the progression until you stall on bench, squat or RDL. At this point cut the progression in half, meaning increase weight half as much as the program calls for. I advise cutting females and men wanting to lose 30 or more lbs to run All Pros routine.

What about form? At this point you just want to focus on the basics. There is too much information about form to try and absorb all of it at once. The basics of each exercise will keep you from being injured since you won’t be lifting huge amounts of weight. As you progress to lifting more and more weight you should devote more and more time to learning the form. A few basics are not flaring elbows during bench and keeping a straight back during squats and DL.

Pendlay rows are covered here

I’m having a hard time with pendlays. What am I doing wrong and can I sub it out? Just put in the time to learn the damn lift. You’re flexible enough, but you’ll need to video yourself and check your form a few times. Keep your back straight like seen in the below photos. At the top of the lift keep your elbows above the bar like seen in the 3rd photo. Notice how my shins are straight up and down. You RDL back into the position and then grab the bar. Notice how far back my hips are. Keep in mind that until you get up to 135lbs the bar will be closer to the ground and require more hip flexibility. Put some mats, blocks, other weights or something under the bar to raise it up to a normal height if needed. If you’re gonna sub it then at least notice how in the first photo the arms are perpendicular to the chest. Any sub has to be the same.

What is a superset? A superset is two exercises combined into one workout. These are done back to back. For the abs and curls superset, you would do one set of abs and then immediately do a set of curls. When you finish the curl set then you would immediately start your second set of abs. This saves time and produces a pump.

How long do I wait between sets? Generally I would advise waiting 2-3 minutes between heavy compound sets (Squat, Bench, Row, RDL, Incline, Lat Pulldown.) Isolation workouts should be somewhere between 30-60 seconds (curls, tricep pressdowns, reverse flies.) The supersets should be done back to back.

How much weight should I use? I highly advise to start out lighter than you think you can handle since the progression is very fast. I can’t stress this enough! This program works best with lighter starting weights. I suggest all lifters, regardless of experience, start with 85% of what they think they can lift. You should not be struggling for 4-6 weeks or so.

If this is your very first time working out then I advise you start with 50% of what you think you can handle. On every workout increase the weight by 10-15% instead of the 5-10lbs listed in the original program. There are 3 A and 3 B workouts in every two weeks. Each will be increased by 10-15% each workout so you should be using 85% of what you feel you’re capable of by the start of week 3. Remember this is a guess since you’re new. Adjust the weights as needed to get to 85% by week 3. Then you will follow normal progression listed in the program. This works great for total beginners because it allows you to get the basics of the exercises down with a safe weight and it also prevent major soreness.

Where did the other versions of the program go? I heard you can only get bigger from high reps sets. I removed the higher rep versions because increasing weight on the high rep versions was too difficult. People stalled much sooner and this probably meant less growth. A lack of progressive resistance (ability to add weight) means a lack of growth. Differences in high reps and low reps are WAY over emphasized especially for beginners. Don’t over think tiny details. See the photo below.

What should I be eating? This depends on your goals. If you are looking to gain muscle you need to be bulking. If you are looking to lose fat, you’ll need to cut. How to do either correctly is covered in excellent detail here http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth…6380183&page=1

The myfitnesspal app is an excellent resource for tracking food.

What supplements should I use? Many beginners think that supplements are the “key” to success. This isn’t the case. Supplements help to fill gaps in your diet. If you are unable to meet the minimum requirements for your macros (see the nutrition link above) or micros, then supplements can be beneficial to you, but understand your diet BEFORE jumping into supplements. I advise a multivitamin (helps to fill in micros) to all trainees. Creatine is also something to consider. It is cheap and can help you push through hard sets. The last thing I recommend is protein powder. You don’t need it IF you reach your protein macro through your normal diet. All of these supplements can be acquired through bb.com’s store at a pretty good price. This isn’t a plug; I get all my stuff from bb.com because they have good prices and fast shipping.

Can I run this program 4 days per week? No! One of the most basic rules (IMO) of bodybuilding is not to work out the same muscles 2 days in a row. Only a few people deviate from this rule successfully and they are generally taking illegal substances.

Why can’t I substitute these exercises for others? *You aren’t a special snowflake needing handpicked exercises for your specific circumstances at this point in your lifting career. You need to grow everywhere and this program is designed to do exactly that. This program is meticulously planned to balance your muscle development. If you started changing out these specifically chosen exercises for others it could lead to muscle imbalances. Imbalances lead to postural issues and in many cases injury.

*There is a list of acceptable substitutions in the original post.

Why can’t I add in other exercises? If you knew how to correctly do this then you’d have written your own routine. 99% of the time when I’m asked if something is ok, it’s a no from me. It normally messes something else up.

My grip is slipping on RDL/DL. What do I do? Using a mixed grip will fix this issue most of the time. Add chalk or liquid chalk if needed. If you can’t hold the bar with mixed grip and chalk then buy lifting STRAPS.

In what order should I do these exercises? You should do them in the order they are written unless gym traffic dictates otherwise. The most taxing exercise is listed first since it will require the most energy to complete.

What about deloading? If you are feeling sluggish and not as strong as you normally are it may be time for a deload. Every 6-8 weeks is a good guess, but everyone is different. This can be done by skipping one workout to give you 4-5 days of consecutive rest. This will keep your central nervous system happy and it will help you push more weight in the long run. A deload should be at least 4 days of rest on this program.

What if I miss a day? Don’t skip the workout you missed. Ex: You missed workout B on Friday. You can either do workout B Saturday and jump back into your normal routine Monday or you can start with workout B on Monday. If you chose to take the weekend off and pick things back up Monday then consider it a deload.

Can I do cardio? Sure! I would advise doing cardio on days you aren’t going to the gym to lift weights. It further develops a habit of going to the gym. There is no harm in doing cardio on your weight training days if done after your lifting; my advice is only to help reinforce fitness as a habit.
