I do a 5x5 workout myself that i LOVE and was the first workout I found to help me get stronger. It also follows the A/B workout scheme
A) Squats 5x5,Bench or military press 5x5, inverted rows3xF( BW exercise) however I'm using the hammer strength ISO row machine instead. Push-up 3xF, and reverse crunches 3x15
B) Squat 5x5, OHP 5x5, Deadlifts 1x5, pull-up 3xf, prone bridges 3x30

You can modify push-ups and use dips, but these are the basic lifts and I love this work out.

Good Luck and Lift big

how do i do that

General forum is for general madness like politics, foolishness, etc. All training stays in powerlifting or bodybuilding.

I like this workout as is. I would dump wrist and calf work from Workout B and add in heavy abs. I would also dump wrist work from Workout A and do curls.

I think the best way to approach a program is to start with a basic program like this, run it for one to 2 months, see what you like and don't like, and make minor adjustments going forward.
