All I care about is gaining muscle size.

All I care about is gaining muscle size. However a plethora of gays on here are telling me to do a 3x5 or 5x5 routine to build a strength foundation. They're also telling me I will gain size of these routines too
So should I carry on with my 5x5 routine? I'm pretty weak but like I said I only care about size.

    You should do a beginner 3x5 or 5x5 for 3-6 months (end of newb-gains phase) and then a non-retarded ppl.

        If you think 3-6 months of lifting is a long time you're ngmi. Getting big takes years not months.

          It's not that just I want to make sure every gym session is optimal

            How does making linear progression on all the major lifts with continuous full body workouts not sound optimal? This is what you get as a beginner. Later on your have to work on body parts separately, slowing down progress. Each workout becomes less optimal as you get more advanced. So just do the beginner 3x5/5x5 routines and enjoy the free gains, because it isn't going to last. Throw in some hypertrophy shit as per the suggestions of whatever program you use

    When plebbit decided to drop SS/SL, they still settled on a lightly modified 3x5. And in any case, the guy who wrote up the reason already came out and said he largely wanted it removed because he figures rippetoe and mehdi hate women.
    The reason is simple: you're not going to grow any noticeable amount of muscle in 3 months. You'll get a little, but not a lot. So you may as well grow strength and technique, which you can very reliably build in 3 months.

      this

      Also newb-gain are mostly strength gains from training your CNS and the best way to do that is by lifting heavy and low rep.

    All of the 3x5 and 5x5 shit is for powerlifters and sport specific lifters that want explosive power. If you just want to build muscle, a range between 8 - 16 is what you actually want to go for, a time-under-tension of 30 - 60 seconds and negatives of 3 - 4 seconds.

        Either a PPL or Upper/Lower routine depending on your time.

        Your PPL could be something like:

        Mon/Thur = Back, Biceps, Forearms.
        Tue/Fri = Legs, Abs.
        Wed/Sat = Chest, Triceps, Shoulders.
        Sun = Rest.

        Or,

        Upper/Lower:

        Mon/Thur = Whole Upper Body.
        Wed = Cardio.
        Tue/Fri = Legs, Abs.
        Sat/Sun = Rest.

        You should do a mixture of free weights and isolation exercises.

            That's fine man. You don't need to do 5 sets on every exercise. 3-4 sets is fine. Just make sure you reach muscle failure in your set range.

            For example:

            You start your chest day off by doing Dumbell Bench Press. Your set/rep range is 4x8-12 with 3 second negatives.

            On set 1, you should be reaching muscle failure on 12 reps or stopping at 12 reps with only 1 or 2 reps left in reserve.

            On set 2, you reach muscle failure at 10 reps.

            On set 3, you reach muscle failure at 8 reps.

            On set 4, your muscles fail at 5 reps.

            At that point, you know you're done with that exercise.

              Reaching muscular failure is not even required just going near exhaust is good enough for growth and is probably better for faster recovery.

            You can still gain size doing 5x5 but not the usual 5 work sets. Instead, do four progressively heavier warm- up sets followed by one work set with the top weight for the day. That way, you don't overtrain and burn yourself at doing 5 and can go all out at one set.

        Do SS/SL/whatever variation of the 3x5/5x5. Doesn't rightly matter except to serious autist. Do plebbits 3x5, it's lighter on squats and has more upper body volume, since I'm guessing that's what you want.
        Whatever it is, do it for 3 months. After that, you can pretty much do whatever the fuck you want.
