Hey guys, I did the 5x5 for the first time today, following Bill Starr's routine from the FAQ link. I have a few questions, I hope none of them are blatantly answered somewhere else, I tried to research as best I could. 1. I'm following the exact routine on Bill Starr's post, which is different from the one listed in the FAQ proper. Instead of doing one day Deadlift-oriented, one day Squat-oriented, etc., it has Squats every day with some others thrown in, like today was Bench Press and Dynamic Rows. Think that's ok, or should I tweak it? 2. Bill's routine requires 5 minutes of rest between sets for the "volume" lifts, and I'm following this exactly, but is there anything I can do in that rest period? I know I need the rest in order to get the most out of each set, but could I at least do some ab work or something in between, that won't use the same muscles? 3. Since I'm doing squats at every lift, should I expect/attempt to add weight each time, even if it's only 48 hours after my last squat workout? Or should I only add weight at the end of each week? 4. Should I stretch before and/or after this lift? My flexibility isn't terrible, but it's not great, and my hamstrings are just barely flexible enough for me to squat all the way down (just below parallel, almost sitting on the ground). Thanks guys. I'm really excited about this workout, I've done plenty of lifting before, but I can already tell this is going to be much more effective...no more half-squats for me.
