A lot of people have had huge success with 5x5 3x/week training as outlined by Mark. R., Glenn P., Bill Starr, etc.
My question is that to get the most out of these programs you really need to do prolonged cycles of the same exersises. (8+ weeks probably if you include ramp up)
I see a conflicting viewpoint between this type of setup and EC/MR's reccomendations that you should be varying exersises on a monthly basis at the very least for best results.
Thoughts on this conflict? Am I missing something?
