    So I can only workout monday through thursday. Is there any variation of 5x5 that fits in on those days? I really made a lot of gains doing the basic 5x5.

    You're telling me there's no way possible for you to work out on Sunday?

    some people have higher priorities, wife, children, extra jobs, school, etc... that logic does not always apply.

    A good place to get new stuff would be newyorkbarbells.com

    I bought that, 300lbs of weights with oly bar + two 45's. Adjustable bench from newyorkbarbells.com and adjustable barbells that will go up to 100lbs each.

    5X5 is teh new hottness I see? I've dabbled in it a bit, I dont know if I like it or not because it feels like workouts are too fast to get real results. when doing a 5x5, do you do the same weight all the reps, or do you go up every set? Also, do you do 5x5 for only the major lifts (bench, squat, deadlift) or for all other exercises too? (leg curls, shurgs, calf raises :hsugh:)
