    Its a beginner strength program the 5x5 I have done.

    When starting out and at low weight its fine. When you move up to intermediate levels, may want to change up the program.

    I liked the 5x5 strength training. There is also the starting strength guy which mostly is 3x5 with warm ups. Those are great for beginners too.

    Now that you are a hulk he man, you do not need such beginner metrics to "weigh" you down, if you will.

    I'm going for the dirty 70s pornstar look

    I've shaved that **** a few times, just comes back thicker and fuller... I would need to go for laser or something, but I really don't care about that enough to actually go through with it :P

    Volume sure is key for hypertrophy gains, I'm slowly realizing that. Did 5x5 for about a year, got mildly shredded. Started going around 80% 1RMs for 8+ reps while keeping constant time under tension, my quads exploded. I wish I would have known that squats and deadlifts are GOAT a couple years ago, I'd probably be competing in physique by now.

    I post in /plg/ sometimes

    But dont know OCB's workout

    Did 5x5 squats at 80% and 8x3 DLs at 75% and that killed me. So much volume

    Holy shiet I forgot about this thread

    I'm getting shredded off OCB's workout, dunno how many of you autists browse 4chan /fit/ but his workout is ****ing killer for an intermediate/advanced bodybuilder.

    First workout wasn't too tough, but I had a really hard time with form on barbell rows.

When you eventually plateau, it has other workouts to advance to if you want to continue getting further. As for the stretches, follow this link and tell me if it works. I'm not sure if it's something that can only be seen when logged in under my account. https://www.hep2go.com/print_card.php?userRef=68739 Those stretches should be enough to get you started.
    Checked it again Al and it won't display any exercises. Eh, I'll go and do my basic stretch routine and lift and I'll talk to you about it later.

    5x5 usually leans to the latter. Not to say it doesn't build strength, but thats a **** ton of volume to do three times a week
