    bill star's 5x5 (anyone use it?)

    So im going to start bill stars advanced 5x5. I decided to do the power cleans instead of the bent rows. What does everyone think about their suggestion to substitute high pulls for the deads? I love heavy deads so this is a hard switch for me to make. Also i know they say not to change the program but can anyone see a benefit to working in some weighted dips? i like weighted dips for upper body mass and it seems like it would go perfectly with this type of progam.
