Get Jacked With The 5×5 Program

1

The 5×5 program has many benefits, including increased strength, breaking plateaus, and periodization. Basically, it’s a workout program designed for strong hits to your muscles, with just enough time for recovery and growth. Although versatile, the program is best suited for strength athletes, seeing as the most common effect is an increase in strength.

Make sure you choose the right weight with which you can perform a total of 5 sets with 5 reps (hence the name). Always start off light-medium and then gradually progress towards heavier weights. The division of exercises per day is vital, so we’ll give you a good example of how a weekly program should look like:

Monday

Barbell full squat – 5×5
Barbell bench press with a medium grip – 5×5
Bent over barbell row – 5×5

Additional exercises – sit-ups and cable lying triceps extension – both 5×5

Wednesday

Front barbell squat – 5×5
Standing military press – 5×5
Barbell deadlift – 3×6
Pullups – 3×6

Additional exercises – barbell curl and crunches – both 3×6

Friday

Barbell full squat – 5×5
Barbell bench press with medium grip – 5×5
Bent over barbell row – 5×5

Additional exercises – bench dips and some fun with the ab crunch machine – both 3×6
