I did that program for about 2-3 months a couple years ago. Great strength/muscle building program. I think at the end my deads were up to about 350...if I tried that now, I'd probably drop a nut...

About 7 weeks in and I am really starting to see gains now.  Started from never having lifted.

Curious, why did you stop the program?  Are you finding more success with something else?  I am gathering info so I can plan what I'll do after I finish 5x5, they have some add-on programs called 3x5, etc.

It's a great muscle building program, but if you want to focus on specific areas, it falls flat. As a beginner, stick with it for a while, and once you get closer to the size/strength that you're looking for, then you can change your routine to focus on more specific muscles. It really covers all of the important lifts, and even if you eventually move onto another workout schedule, you'll still be utilizing them.

You may notice that after you get closer to your goal, maybe your chest, back, shoulders, triceps or some other area isn't where it needs to be...that's the time to change the program.

Good thoughts, thanks.  Thinking I will stick with it until I am no longer able to add weight, then I will start to mix things up.

Back today....

Probably 8 sets of pullups, different variations, 4 sets of heavy deadlifts, and then I'll finish it off with some curls.

Did this, except the curls.

Went semi-light on the deads, 205 lbs for 8-10 reps...4 sets. Feeling goooood today haha. My abs...oh God the burn heh

Chest/Triceps tonight. The best.

Not really though, wife is in Boston, that's why I'm on dog walking duty.


Your wife came here in a Nor'easter?  Maybe she can take some rain back with her to SoCal.

Ha, I had a big squat day Monday and yesterday was my most sore day. Looked like a weirdo getting in and out of my car.

    • Two pros playing, and it was safer to be in the fairway they were playing rather than a parallel fairway.
    • A GEARS-that costs as much as a well outfitted SUV-is hardly something the average people can buy. Dude-I am with EriK - your responses have been highly disappointing. Manufacturers have missed things before. They are not always chasing what is best but what they can sell. This makes sense to me and I see what your friend is saying @iacas. I think the GCQuad will shoe dynamic lie angle-right? Yes-appears so: What We Measure | Foresight Sports Precision, Not Guesswork How We Measure Foresight Sports launch monitors use a combination of infrared object tracking and high-speed...
    • I don’t believe he ever said that.  He can defend himself, but I’m pretty sure he was simply saying improvements might be made with further research in this area as technology advances. Please don’t resort to hyperbole in the absence of valid points.
    • Hmmm. Actually it would be more accurate to say the FBI has been using DNA for years, but now average people can buy the same tools and use them to solve crimes at home. Not saying don't use GEARS for any number of swing investigations. It will provide information to the average golfer they otherwise would never have access to. But the idea that all the shaft and club OEMs have completely missed the mark on the idea of lie angle is far fetched.
    • How badly did Bryson play to lose 5&3 in a 12-hole match? He lost five of nine holes.
