Just to make sure we're on the same sheet of music, I'm going to post the routine.

Workout A

Back Squats 5×5
Chin-Ups or Pull-Ups 5×5
Dips or Bench Press 5×5
Wrist Work (Grip Work) 2×10
Calves 2×15-20

Workout B

Front Squats 5×5
Rows 5×5
Standing Press 5×5
Deadlifts 3×5 (2 warm-up sets and 1 “stabilizer set”)
Wrist Work 2×10
Calves 2×15-20

Week 1: A, B, A
Week 2: B, A, B
Week 3: A, B, etc

I like this routine. It is basic and effective. I wouldn't recommend another routine simply because fullbody work requires adaptation. The old timers knew what they were doing when planning routines like this. Starting with this is a good choice.

looks a like good plan to me. i say try it out, but you have to give it a few weeks to get used to it....

dont start it and then stop just cause you don't like it right off... i have learned that some plans work great from the start and others dont work at all, and then there are the ones that just kinda grow on you... you know what i mean.. i guess im saying what ever you decide to do, give it a fair shake from the start...

you will do fine, now go SFW

It's always a good idea to find a routine that you plan on usinf for a while. The Park routine is solid because you can make minor changes along the way and still use the same template. It is simpe and doesn't require many changes.

I'll echo others sentiments of that program. It's deceptive in it's simplicity, yet when you employ it with a solid work ethic, and enough food, you will grow.

There are several aspects of this program that many would dismiss, until they have really looked at it and understand what they are seeing. As BTB said, you don't just jump into this type of program at a run. You need to allow some time for your conditioning to allow an all out assault. Even with good conditioning, you can overreach your abilities, and need a break for recovery.

The Park 5x5 is my preferred method of progression. I generally use either a fullbody or an A/B split as my template to work from. I tend to prefer the A/B over the fullbody at this time.

There are a couple of ways to gauge when to add weight with the Park 5x5. I have in the past gone up in reps till I was completing 5x8, and then increased weight. Or, you could go with a smaller increase when you have hit 5x5, and just microload with 2.5 lbs plates.

I would advise, especially when starting out, go up in reps to 8, and then add weight. Make small weight increases in the beginning, no more than 5lbs, and then start back at 5 reps, and work your back up. There's a few reasons to do this, but I don't have time right now to go into it.

Thanks gl and btb okay i want to ask is the setup im going to use be okay.
NOW THIS IS WHAT I WOULD PUT IN FOR WORKOUT A IF ITS NOT WORTH CRAP GUYS I ACCEPT ANY ACCOMODATIONS TO THIS I TAKE ALL ADVICE.
back squats 5x5
wide grip pull ups 5x5
bench press 5x5
wrist curls 2x10
leg press 2x20 now my legs are fairly strong on this my max is 605 may not be much for you guys but its a fair amount for me but i rarely use that much for leg work i would usually work up to about 405 that still may be to much for a leg press

workout b is the same with exercises except front squat and rows i will do these no subs for these
