    As a whole body routine, it's a great workout. I went from doing 5 day splits to 3 day whole body 5x5 and after the first three weeks all my lifts had significantly increased. It's great for size and strength gains.

    Back squat
    Front squat
    Push press
    High pull
    Bench press
    Barbell row (alternate with weighted pull ups)
    Deadlift

    And depending on how I'm feeling after I'll add in 5 sets of curls, dips, and 3 sets of calves.

    I've recently started to super set some of the exercises for the sake of time and for a little change in my workout. I also change up whether I'm using barbells vs dumbbells on a weekly basis. On alternating days I'll do HIIT for only 10 min to avoid over training my legs followed by abs. I've experimented with whole body vs upper body/Lower body 5x5 and I def like whole body better seems to work better for me
