I’ve been doing a lot of research on 5x5 style programs and decide d to try a program like the one on the stronglifts 5x5 blog. However, it’s kind of a beginner program so i made a few adjustments for a more well rounded physique.
I play rugby and my goals right now are just to get strong and more muscular/lean.
Here’s what it looks like:
I alternate A and B workouts, and usually workout monday, wednesday, friday.
-BB rows 5x5
-Hamstring curls 1x5
-rope pushdowns 1 set to failure
- neck or calves for one set.
-Overhead Press 5x5
-DB one legged squat 1x5
-Incline DB curls 1 set to failure
-Weighted situps or forearm work
I started off with lighter weights and have been increasing all the major lifts by 5 pounds with each workout. So far I feel like my strength is increasing steadily as well as some weight gain over the last couple weeks.
Any recommendations? advice? results with a program like this?
