    Powerbuilding! I love reading HeavyBomber's journal (incidentally I think journal reading combined with personal experimenting is the best way to learn about programming). Check it out on this website...its got tons of great stuff.

    BTW, SS is not a powerlifting routine. It's a beginners routine that should be used by anyone that plans on seriously pursuing any type of sport, whether it be bodybuilding, powerlifting, oly lifting, football, strongman, etc... It's just the fastest way to build up a good foundation of strength and muscular bodyweight before getting into more specific training.

    well put!
    This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw

    I also noted at the end that I would not recommend that routine but use it as a tool for future reference...
    I'm not knocking your post. But I am knocking calling a list of exercises a 'routine.' Just as a list of ingredients isn't a recipe, a list of exercises isn't a routine. You need to know how to load each exercise both during each workout, but also within each week, each block, each month, etc. Training is more involved than simply picking a bunch of exercises. I'm sure you know that, but that 'routine' simply isn't one.

    I'm sure Coleman does. But see my definition of 'bodybuilder' previously: it's usually teens on message boards who weigh 165.

    Well put. For anyone who's still confused about designing a "bodybuilding" or other type of program, they should read this.

    I'll have a few of my priceless quotes in there, but I can't give it all up in just this one book. Sorry.
