I’ve only recently started to appreciate the glory of compound lifts and periodizations routines. My confusion is about the 5x5 Stronglift programs: hitherto I have been doing the Madcow 5x5, only to realize now that it is a variation of Reg Park’s 5x5. While I have been having great success in terms of strength and mass I wonder if I should scale back my weight and work through Reg Park’s program, then go to the 3x5 variation until I am forced to switch to madcow. Does anyone have any insight on this? I’d appreciate any feedback from people that have had more experience with these programs.
