    yes 5 reps and 5 sets generally but it doesn't have to be exactly that and you don't have to follow the exact compound lifts.

    you can use a variation. the objective is to build a strong base as a new lifter. thing it is a great program the first few years of lifting

    bro squats, deadlifts, rows, pullups, dips, these all good for 5x5

    5 reps 5 sets for each body part
    so you do like 5 sets 5 reps maybe 70% max for chest back arms and so on
    legs try to go 3-4 rep range

    I値l use squats as an example here because in the standard 3 day a week 5x5 approach you squat every day. Start with the olympic bar empty and do 5 sets of 5 with 45 seconds between sets. At 5 pounds on each side every time day you do the exercise. It doesn稚 take long before you get into challenging weights and you can start to lengthen time between sets as needed. I made good advances but it was hard only going to the gym three times a week. About a month in one of the other gym rats told me that when they saw me doing such light weight they thought I was ill.
