    5x5 with a twist...

    Ive been doin this 5x5 program for the past 3-4 weeks Eclipse Gym :: View topic - Bill Starr 5x5 Primer - How to create your own 5x5 program while attempting to bulk and have seen pretty good weight gains, but i feel like all the gains are in the legs, chest, and back and my arms dont seem to have changed much, if at all. so i was wondering if i were to add 5 sets of 5 reps of barbell curls and skull crushers only on monday and friday, would that be getting into the overtraining region, or would this be a good thing to try? also, would adding abs and forearms on maybe wednesday be a good idea? ive been following this program pretty religiously as many people recommended it, but i feel like it doesnt give u a bulk in all areas. thanks

    That's very similar to one of the Madcow programs, likely I'd stick the curls and crushers on the Friday workout. Check out the Madcow site in my sig for more options on 5x5.
