I like it the way it is lol, maybe add chinups or pullups. But maybe some type of pulling mon (rows,pullups,romDL) and thursday chinups, calf raises. But again this is just me, I like to keep stuff basic.

Agreed with mab, throw in some dips and pullups, and I would also add 5x3 on the clean or powerclean on day 1 but thats just me. The cleans is a great lift-

I just wanted to add that powercleans are awesome. But if you don't want to just do them by themselves replace OHP with clean and press.

i have zero to know power clean technique lol unless you count jerking the weight from the floor and doin ohp with it, that may be a clean

lol thats how i started out with the clean. Unless you know a coach i wouldn't do the full clean, but the powerclean is pretty easy to learn.

also another idea which i have done with success is the squat,push,pull which were you choose a squat(front,back,box or any), a push(bench,ohp or any), and a pull(row,chinup,DL) i did it with a 5x2 5x3 5x1 with 90%, 80%, 70% 1rm with 3 different exercises for mon wen fri.

but that could be used with your program to, with straight 5x5, thats just the type of stuff i like to do though

Thanks man ill lookin into a little bit of percentage work, and ill do my ohp as a clean and press

mab54 07-10-2011 07:33 PM

you can keep it a simple 5x5 i did that for strength with a heavy pull heavy push and heavy squat with a medium and light day for each one % are not needed
