I train PPL 5x5 and I look more and more like the guy on the bottom every day. Should I switch all my compound lifts to 3x10 so I can look more like the guy on the top?

      Pretty sure that guy is the one who wanted to join his school football team so he ate a ton and became huge. He looked quite aesthetic beforehand, I’m sure that once he was done with football he just cut down and looked good again.

      Yes. 3x8-12 has been a staple since the 1940s. The shit works and has always worked. 5x5 is some meme shit past your first month or two.

      Make it 5x10-15 and only use it for compounds. For your isolations/secondary lifts cut the sets down

    I recommend 10 sets of 3 reps. Perform form for each rep, able to use heavy weights, and feel less fatigue towards finishing the exercise.

    Why do you post this retarded shit. Literally what is there to gain. The top physique is also nearly the exact same musculature as the bottom but leaner and with better lighting.

        Please, young man, do not attempt to be disrespectful. I have studied language and engaged in weight lifting for approximately forty years longer than you. Only fools believe that it is enough to train only the body or only the mind. As Aristotle once said, "Free is the man who nourishes all within himself, for he shall approach the world with strength of many, and wisdom of all as one." I implore you to not only develop your muscles, but also your spirit. And I assure you, that your mother will die in her sleep tonight if you do not reply to this post. Be well.

    >PPL 5x5
    PPL and 5x5 are two different routines. PPL schedules start with 1 low rep compound exercise and is followed up with 5 or more high rep exercises. Idk what meme routine you are following OP

      why not make all exercises in it high rep?

        Because the first low rep compound exercise is mostly meant for strength. Unless you can't gym for more than 30 minutes it shouldn't matter. It also doesn't strictly have to be 5x5. You can do 3x5 or 4x6. It takes me 20 minutes to do the first compound exercise and 40-50 minutes for the 5/6 hypertrophy exercises after that. You'll get both strong and big this way and it will make the workouts more fulfilling and fun.

      What should a natty do then? Every other routine seems like a meme.

        Full body weighted calisthenics until failure 6-12 reps (weighted ring dips->bulgarian dips->pullups-> towel chinups->leg raises).
        Leg day separately (leg press, expensions, curls).

    PPL is a meme routine for like 90% of people. For compounds you do want to build up to at least a heavy set between 3-6 reps to get the full benefit. After that you can do a few extra sets for volume. Also focus on diet more.
