    Hi guys. New here, just suscribed. I will be doing the full body since I am going to be doing this in a deficit and am a beginner (have lifted but havent been consistent the last 2 / 3 years)
    My questions cause I am still getting used to this app and still don’t know if there is a FAQ or something

    Full body are 3 days, the same exercises every workout day?

    Subs for some exercises? Like my gym doesnt have chest supported tbar row or hack squats, I am familiar with squats/front squats and pendlays but not sure what you might recommend me here. (Don’t know if there are other workouts but atm at first sight it seems first weeks FB are same exercises, pardon me if I am mistaken and haven’t looked good)

    Pretty excited, mostly used on doing the big 3/4 for strength so this is a bit out of my comfort zone in terms of exercise selection

    I found out the subs, its in the workout itself my B. Just cause of my bias and past, benefits of leg press vs squats? Ive always been told squats and DLs are king of all exercises, what place do they have in your mind coach? Are they really essential since I noticed the FB doesn’t have them

    Hey there Coach. Apologies about my impatience, its all new for me, this app, forum and specially exercise selection and stuff. So yeah, apologies for that. Normally im the guy who lurks in forums like bodybuilding.com and tnation and asks there, like in the bb com forum they endorse fierce 5 there alot (compounds 3×5 and 3×8 for back) so always grew up with that mindset. Compounds 3×5. I might do the squats then, I love squats and deadlifts, but can live with romanians, like you say, Brice coming up with A / B so will see how that will be but excited.
    About the bench press, db is superior to barbell? This is just informative, same like the squat, people push for barbell movements so this is me being intrigued and wanting to get more knowledge on this.
    Also i would be working out in a deficit. Hypertrophy will be a hsrd thing to achieve when in a deficit correct? So just focus on pushing myself and add progressive overload? Anyways thanks for the help and glad to be here! Also gonna add a pic of my gyms chest supported back machine, see if its a good one. Thanks man, looking forward in hearing from ya!

    Thanks for your answers man, clears alot. Always been said about barbell movements being superior specially as a beginner/in a deficit to just try and increase in strength and muscle will follow.  But hearing about the increased ROM of DBs actually is nice + imbalance fixes.
    Incline bench press or high incline bench press is like a OHP right? But less taxing on shoulders?
    I like how you mention these exercises but also are open to lets say, ok you know how to squat, do squats instead of leg press. You don’t see that alot. Its follow my program to the T or don’t follow at all. Really looking forward how the A / B.
    I know I cant be a long period in a deficit. Now I weight 229lbs, i myself am 5f6.8, 30yo high bf%. What insights can you give me here? I thought 2200kcals 3x fb, some walking on rest days.
    So big takeaway, try my best to progress on lifts, increasing weight/reps whenever possible to retain as much muscle as possible, what should I do if I fail any reps? Gonna relisten your msg after this, let all the info pour in haha anyways thanks man sorry for the long text. I just wanna learn, do everything the best way possible
