Do you think your full body routine with the rep goals is superior to starting strength for a novice? My goals are strength and size, maybe compete in some PL meets in 1.5-2 years for fun

To specify my question: is 3 sets of 5 reps, adding weight every workout inferior to your rep goal system? I have some concern regarding the amount of volume on starting strength for building muscle.

Something like this is one example. I have a couple guys running this right now on the forum:

Huge Gainer Early Intermediate Strength Building 4 Day Split | Huge Gainer

Gidday Mr Beast, Many thanks for all your time and assistance, I like the look of this workout and would love to have a go at it, but the only problem is I only have limited resources and I don't have access to a leg press or leg curl or a cable machine. I don't go to a public gym because of my work hours. Do you know of any other workouts of this nature that I can do with basic tools, Barbells, dumbbells, Kettlebells, Trap bar, Cage, Bench, and the like. Sorry for all the trouble, Many Thanks Nath.

I just found this workout ...... Real Results 4 Day Upper Lower Split Workout

By BendTheBar

Do you think I could use this , with the 20 rep goal system with it.

Many Thanks, Nath.
You could use it with any rep goal number. The number can be adjusted per lift to fit your needs.

Sure I'd be happy to take a look at your deadlift form. Get your post could up in the post farming thread and then post it up.

Which fullbody workout are you referencing? I have about 20 floating around.

Hey Steve,


Just wondering what are your thoughts on direct ab work?

Do you think it is necessary if you have a fairly high amount of compound lifts in your routine? Do you think it helps improve other lifts like squat?

I love training, but ab is definitely not my favorite thing to do.

That rep goal system - would 3 sets with a goal of 30 be appropriate for someone looking to gain some strength, but also hoping to pack on a good deal more size (with diet to match)?

I feel that a little higher rep work in general (e.g., around the 10 mark) might be good for me, but I could be wrong. Not for everything, necessarily - like deadlifts, say.

I'm still a novice lifter, probably, though I might be approaching intermediate soon-ish. Not sure. Somewhere in that area.

I think some ab work is good, but I do not recommend overworking the abs like most people do. I am against any form of unbalanced training.

I recommend using things like weighted decline situps, cable crunches, ab wheel roll outs, planks and side bends. These exercises will help build core strength, and more strength is always a good thing.

Not only will core strength help with the big lifts, but it will also help to maintain form when the lift becomes difficult and form wants to break.
