I'm gonna start working with a 5X5 routine...I found this on net somewhere, BUT there are a lot of variations so it has me a bit confused...Does this look okay???

Monday (all weights ramped)
Bench 5X5
Squat 5X5
Rows 5X5
Weighted Dips 2 sets


Wed
Milary Press 5X4
Squat 5X4
Rows 5X4
Curls 2 sets
Chinup/pullups 5 sets

Friday
Bench 5X4, 1X3, 1X8
Squat 5X5 1X3 1X8
Rows 5X5 1X3 1X8
Weighted Dips 2 sets

The only thing different is I wanna add snatches into the routine. Where would be best place to do that?

Peace

You could put snatches in for Rows on the 2nd day. Also replace weighted dips for some ab exercise on the 3rd day or just add abs somewhere.

That doesn't seem like a good plan to me. Upper and lower body heavy three times a week is going to kill your CNS in a hurry.

I would look for another 5x5, (Korte's?) that splits two heavy lifting days into upper and lower days, with just assistance work for both upper and lower in the same week.

Sorta like Westside... :p

The only real way to know is to give it a shot. Try it out for a specific number of weeks (try 8 maybe) then test your max lifts. Good luck. Make sure to keep a journal to look back on.
