my experiance is the 5x5 is a very fast workout
if done with proper rest it should take no more than 45 mins to an hour.
I am a huge advocate of the 5x5 not just for begining lifters but for people like the op that dosent ahve alot of time.
its very simple
you have a press,pull,squats/deadlifts,pullups,dips and done
not in that order but still that is the bare bones of the workout.
what exactly are you looking for though?
if you look here which is where I got my template from after being directed there you will see that what you are doing is basicly how it should be done anyways.
That’s an interesting link. Definitely worth a look. Can the beginner w/o really be done in 30 minutes? Sounds very aerobic!
My motivation is that the men in my family work so much that they get out of shape soon as they start working. I did a lot of simple workout stuff in college and was in pretty good shape (I think anyway). My goal is to stay in shape, but I can’t run anymore because of my limited time. It seems like a quick weight workout 3 days a week is the key.
No prob with food (own a store with my dad) and, I can run over to the gym when the store is quiet, like at 2 in the afternoon.
