I'm 5'8" and 170 lbs and am currently doing a 5x5 type of program. I know it's probably not ideal so I'll start reading through the workouts for something better.

Day 1
-Leg Press (hoping to switch to squats soon) super set with Power Cleans or overhead presses
-EZ bar curls super set with seated calf raises
Day 2
Off, light cardio and stretching, yoga (seems to really help my squat)
Day 3
-bench press super set with stiff leg dead lifts or barbell rows
-dips super set with weighted sit ups or leg raises
Day 4
Off, light cardio and stretching, yoga
Repeat

I get 3 workouts in per week and do a lot of outdoor cardio on weekends.

On the first super sets of each day I progressively add weight but keep the reps at 5 per set with only the last two sets being near max.

The second super sets are higher rep add on type sets to near failure but higher reps, like 10 plus

I'm currently benching 225 x 5, leg pressing 560 x 5, over head pressing 135 x 5 and dead lifting 185 x 5 on my max sets.

I would like to increase my strength on core lifts especially squats, dead lifts and cleans. I'm coming off the leg press soon, I found I couldn't squat properly after not doing them for years and finding my lower body flexibility too poor to allow proper form. Hence the yoga classes which I know aren't too manly but they've really helped my knees and hips for heavy lower body lifts.

My boys also want to lift with me so I'm hoping to design a program we can all follow.

So is my current routine on the right track?
Are my boys at 13 and 14 too young to start a 5x5 type program?

I'm looking forward to focusing my workouts and gaining knowledge on strength training through all of the info here.

John
Welcome to the forum John.

I train teen powerlifters. My recommendation is to get them on a bodyweight and moderate dumbbell routine for about 6 months first.

Hello Fellas

Started my training pretty much after I got out of diapers. Was always picking up trying to lift stuff so I was told. By grade school use to drag out old tires, bricks for a high jump ect. to make an obstacle course complete with a barbell for OH press. Have always been driven to excel physically, actually enjoy pushing the limits.
Have a family, wife, two kids a son who lifts too and a daughter who is in sports.

Look forward to making new friends here.

Welcome aboard Todd. Good to have another family man on board. We tend to be an "older" forum, meaning not too many teens hang out. Hope you will feel right at home.

Start up a training log and stick around. Let us know if we can help in any way.
