In the near future I intend to venture away from HST style for a while & give 5x5 a try. I haven't trained under this method before. I've seen a few examples of routines but am looking for some suggestions from those w/ experience w/ this method; how did you set up your routine & schedule, etc. I have a couple ?s too, mainly regarding set-up of the routine, i.e. what lifts to use, how often, rep ranges, etc.: 1. Is it necessary to only train 1 bodypart (or group, like chest/shoulders/tris) once per week, or can you hit these every 5 days or so (twice a week)? 2. It's recommended that I choose specific lifts that I want to use 5x5 on. Is it advisable to have multiple lifts per bodypart for which you'd train 5x5 (say, incline DB press AND dips)? 3. Along the lines of #2, should your 5x5 lifts be kept on separate days, or is it ok to do multiple 5x5 lifts the same day (as long they are antagonistic, such as chest & back, etc.)? 4. Do you combine other lifts, using a higher rep range (8-10 reps), along w/ your 5x5 lifts? 5. What length of "cycle" do you recommend (I have heard 4-6 weeks is enough), and do you recommend a "deloading" or reduced weight/volume week at some point? TIA for any feedback.
