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.

Nice! I have a hard time not goin 5 a week. All in the head. What were your workouts

Barbell row (alternate with weighted pull ups)
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
