    Is stronglifts 5x5 worth it


    I haven't worked out in about 6 months or so and was thinking of trying the strong lifts 5x5 to get warmed up and add strength but do you think it is better then a regular routine like most people do...back/biceps, chest/triceps type of workout.

    Its a good routine for beginners,I think its better then the standard train one muscle a week workout even when you become at advanced at it you can just move onto 3x5.

    Lol..too light and inexperienced for H-drol or any PH/DS , get some poundage bro and some experience down the road and then think about gear , at 5'10 and 170 you can still get to 190 with proper nutrition and a solid workout routine like 5x5...specially 5x5 which is perfect for mass and strength.

    This.
    Stick with SL5X5 for year(though you will probably move onto 3x5 within that year) and you'll get massive strength gains trust me.I've been doing SL5X5 for 7 months and my sqaut and dead are both above 400 pounds after starting from 180

    Yup , or 5/3/1 if you have the dedication to keep up with higer volume after the compounds , its all about taste ! But go natty bro...you are far too light and new to the gym (in terms of knowledge of proper routines it seems) for PH/DS...

    better for what? splits are best for advanced and elite bodybuilders. training movements are better for the other 99.99% of the worlds population.

    so what are your goals.
    you can call me "ozzie" for short.

    Agreed in some aspects, that's why I may switch my routine up.

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.
