Back at it again! For these lifts, warm-up with 50% of your five-rep max. I.E., if you squat 225 lbs, then warm up with roughly 115 or 35’s on each side of the barbell. 5×5 means you do five sets of five reps with the same weight. Why does this method work? Training to failure gets you pumped and sore; Soreness prevents you to train the muscles again the same week. 5×5’s is based on common sense, these compound lifts involves more muscle activation – squats use more muscles – you can lift heavier and thus build more muscle. These workouts are short but the intensity is high, you’ll look forward to going to the gym because those strength gains are going to come FAST. Enjoy the workout!
