I've been training for about a year with bodyweight exercises, pullups, handstand pushups etc etc, but recently I managed to get a dumbbell set with 80kg of weight plates. Hence, I'm planning to start hitting the plates with a basic program.
After reading around on T-Nation, I'm planning to go for the 5x5 program with the following exercises
- Military press
- Bench press
- Weighted pullups
Should I get a barbell, or are the dumbbells sufficient for the exercises I plan to do?
How often should I do each exercise? 2 or 3 times a week?
Can I do all six exercises in a single session, say on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, or is it better to split them up. If its better to split them up, how should I split them up?
TIA for any feedback
