StrongLifts and Why Its a Fantastic Training Program
StrongLifts.com/5x5/ program is one of the best workout training programs to follow. As mentioned in Rebirth Fitness, this program fouces on pure strength and muscle gain. The biggiest positives of this program is that indivdiuals only complete three exercises each workout, three times a week for about 45 minutes per workout. It's amazingly great for those that don't have as much time to devote to the gym.

In StrongLifts 5x5, indivdiuals squat every workout, three times a week. It focuses on adding weight each workout as long as you can. Its a truly simple way to add muscle and get strong...fast. The program of 5x5 stands for five sets of five reps. The program of 5×5 stands for five sets of five reps. These are the sets and reps you do on every exercise except Deadlifts. The program mentions that you do Deadlifts for only 1 set of five reps because doing so “would beat you up”..but I’ve been doing 5 sets of 5 reps and I would have to disagree with the author.
The author tells the story of a wresetler in Ancient Greece named Milo from Croton. Milo from Croton got stronger for the Olympics by carrying a newborn calf on his back each day. As the calf grew bigger, he carried a heavier weight. This training stimulated Milo’s body to get stronger and build muscle. It turned him into the strongest guys of his time.
