**Stronglifts 5×5 Program**

The Strong lifts 5x5*is a 12-week bodybuilding program created to promote muscle hypertrophy and strength.***This bodybuilding program requires minimal equipment***(bench, barbell, weight plates) so you can do these workouts at home.

Workouts are divided up into workout A and workout B:

**Workout A:***Barbell Row, Bench Press, Squat

**Workout B:***Deadlift, Overhead Press, Squat

Each workout is done on alternating days, three times per week, with a day of rest in between. This could mean you do workout A on Monday, workout B on Wednesday, and workout A again on Friday. Two days for rest, then back at it on Monday with workout B.

Just like with German Volume Training, you have to lift heavy to build muscle. But this time, you’re only lifting five reps for five sets, with just one set for deadlifts. There’s an app you can download to follow along with, or you can use a spreadsheet to track your lifts.

This one is also not recommended for beginners,***you should have at least six months of lifting experience**. The Strong lifts program gives you a full-body workout*with each gym session. Doing the same lifts over and over can be boring so this program may not be for everyone.

You also need to have your nutrition*on point and get lots of sleep and rest to aid in recovery.
