Not sure if I should post this in the BB or PL forum, but thought I would post it here.

Reason why I'm posting this routine is because I'm confused whenever they say, "and throw in some accessory work in there." I'm not exactly sure what to throw in there.

I got this routine from ology:

Monday
Legs
5x5 Front Squats
2 (8-10) Hack Squat
2 (8-10) SLDL
2 (8-10) Leg Curls
2 (4-6) Standing Calf Raise
2 (8-10) Sitting Calf Raise



Wednesday
Chest
5x5 Incline DB Press
2 (8-10) Flat DB Press
2 (8-10) Crossovers
2 (6-10) DB press
2 (6-8) CGBP
2 (8-10) DB Side Laterals


Friday
Back
5x5 Deadlift
2 (8-10) CG Pullups
2 (8-10) BB Rows
2 (8-10) BB Curls
1 (8-10) Bent over laterals

This is not the 5x5 program. At least not how it was designed by Bill Starr, which is a truly great program. Check out this link:

You actually don't need to do any assiatance work, but if you decide to add some then I would recommend ab work on Monday, chins on Wednesday, and weighted dips on Friday. Also, here is a link for calculations:

Yeah, I got confused. I just read up on the Bill Starr 5x5 program. From this post I thought I missed something. I had my wife start the 5x5 program yesterday. Unbeknownst to her I am going to get her totally jacked. I may even spike her drinks with ALN's Results.
