And one that I’ve gone back to year after year, season after season, over the past 20 years...
Is the good old 5x5 program my Uncle Elroy started me on when I was just 14 years old.
I've experimented with different styles of training because I’ve got an open mind, and as a strength coach, it's my duty to know everything that's out there.
However, in terms of effectiveness and SPEED of results...
Nothing has ever come anywhere close to 5x5.
(More specifically, 5x5 with powerful tweaks and customization)
And to prove it...I didn’t just experiment with myself.
I experimented with my athletes too over almost a full decade of coaching...and time and time again:
5x5, and customized variations of it, have worked best for 99% of my athletes.
Over the years, I’ve discovered a laundry list of reasons why 5x5 works so well...
