Madcow 5x5 Help


#1

So I’m doing Stronglifts 5x5 and ready to move on to Madcow 5x5.

Now, after looking at different charts, I see it shows one week only, and I was wounder do I do Deadlifts and Over head press on Fridays? I want to know if I’m only doing Bench on Monday, and on Fridays, I can’t understand why the chart doesn’t have a second chart with Deadlifts and Overhead press 1x3 at the end of the week. Is a light 1x5 all I need for Deadlifts?

I’ve looked at a lot of different Madcow charts and it looks all the same. Could someone tell me if I’m just suppose to do Deadlifts and Overhead press on Wednesday? Dose the plan have a workout A and workout B? Thank you.

You do a military press or incline press on Wednesday and there are no deadlifts on Friday.

You may be thinking of the Texas Method which has both bench and overhead and they alternate weekly - week 1 has benching on Monday/Friday and pressing on Wednesday and week 2 has pressing on Monday/Friday and benching on Wednesday
