    Just had an argument with some "fit chik" about 5x5

    Tried to explain how garbage 5x5 is for anyone that's in over 1 year, but she defended it like a fuking retard. Am I wrong, or is she an ape?

    You don't look like you lift, that's why she was arguing with you.
    "So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. . . . Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place." -Tecumseh

    5x5 works for as long as you can make progress on it. Might be one year. Might be 5 years.

    Stupid argument and both of you are wrong. Doing 5 sets of 5 reps can fit into any training program at a given time, what you mean is that 5x5 linear progression is crap after you're a noob. Which would be true because you can't possibly progress linearly 2-3 times per week for a year.

    Though if you're one of those people who regresses every few months because you have program A.D.D. then you may feel like 5x5 works forever because of course it's going to work again if you've lost a bunch of strength.

    yeah, i specifically mean the 5x5 program, not just doing a 5x5 set.

    5x5 is for copers.

    Train 12-20 reps crew.

Compared with that, the human life is only a blink, just a little time. In that short time - people are born, laugh, cry, fight, are injured, feel joy, sadness, hate someone, love someone. All in just a moment. And then, are embraced by the eternal sleep called death."

    I recently did 5x5 to just get my strength back up fast. I've since plateaued on bench and will have to do something different now. 5x5 is good but it's pretty hard to increase weight every week doing that many reps and sets.

    For me it wasn't so much that it lacked strength gains as it was a lack of size gains beyond newbie gains made me switch.
    Over the years I've probably gained as much muscle mass doing bodyweight training as what I ever got from 5x5.
    3 sets of 12 to 24 has been my favorite numbers for years now, with whatever weight will bring me to failure.
