Stupid question maybe but I have been doing 5x5 everyday now my lifts aren't that big but I don't really feel tired either, is it maintainable and can I get gains doing it?

Right now I am benching like 110 lbs, squating a plate, deadlifting a plate, rowing like 90 lbs and ohp like 70 lbs and I am at like 160 lbs 5'10. Am I going to make gains this way?

When the weight gets easy where I can do 15 reps no problem I increase the weight. Am I gonna make it??

      >provided you lift hard
      most people don't lift/train as hard as they should be, often people think they train "to failure" but had another couple of reps in them

    those are baby weights (1 plate deadlift?? that's literally the starting point for male deadlift), if you don't feel tired you need to start training harder and upping the weights.
    Also 15 reps is too high for strength training, after you just make 5x5 you up the weight a little, train to failure, if you keep failing consistently you might need a deload week.

      Yeah they are pretty easy, I was wondering if I could still make gains with it if I go in everyday to the gym and lift them.

        if it's easy then no you're not making gains. Train harder.

          I heard if you compensate with volume you can make up for higher weight reps, was thinking I could do that with 5x5 if I do the same weight everyday and slowly increase as it gets easier.

            5x5 is a strength training routine, sounds like you want a hypertrophy routine which is usually 3x8-12, look up some hypertrophy lifting routines instead.

    Get this. Read this. Do this.

      Just do this. Do this, stop visiting IST, and if you want to do more, honestly don't for now. Gains will come fast if you let them, and you can't really "maximize" them. When you can bench your bodyweight, you're allowed to consider doing slightly more as long as it doesn't impede the progress of your main lifts. Something more might be lateral raises and other little accessories for aesthetics, or high rep calisthenics at home.

    That's way too high if you're doing 5x5. You should be increasing the weight a lot sooner, like I'm talking if you can do 6 or 7 on your last set with no problem then add more weight next workout

    the answer is simple, if you're not tired raise the weight higher. Don't autistically follow some guide, lift until you start failing or until your form starts to fuck up. If you're lifting to failure/AMRAP then you WILL need your rest days

    You should limit each exercise to 3 times a week at most.
    You should add 5 lbs every time you hit 5x5 successfully.
    Whenever you start missing reps, you should repeat the same weight, slowly adding reps until you hit 5x5.
