  1. Great job on the article. It’s funny how the 5×5 plan has been showing up in passing in a bunch of different places this week and it was good to see it written out and defined! You mentioned in there that the rest sets are longer than with the 10×10, but what do you see as a good rest period for the 5x5s? I don’t think when doing 80-85% RM a typically MI40 40 second space between sets would be enough, right? By the same token, it’s easy when lifting near max levels to want a full 3 minutes between sets, which winds up putting just one exercise at well over 15 minutes.

    Thanks in advance!

    • Hi Dave! Easy solution. Since you are doing 5×5 I suggest 3 min rest period for each exercise…BUT you will not remain for 3 minutes just waiting…LOL. What do I mean? Do the exercises using Modified Supersets. Example:

      A Modified Superset of Incline Bench Press and Wide Grip Pull-ups of 5×5 looks like this:

      Incline Bench Press 1 set of 5 reps

      (Rest 90 seconds)

      Wide Grip Pull-ups 1 set of 5 reps

      (Rest 90 seconds)

      Incline Bench Press 1 set of 5 reps

      (Rest 90 seconds)

      Wide Grip Pull-ups 1 set of 5 reps

      (Rest 90 seconds)

      Continue like this until all 5 sets are done.

      Best always!

      • Thanks Hugo. I actually just realized that the sidebar was also part of your article- I thought it was an ad or a different article, and there you went over the concept as well. Makes great sense when you’re doing a day like chest and back or biceps and triceps where the opposing muscle groups are being worked. Probably not as much if you do a back and bicep day as the pull/chin ups are going to be working the same muscle group as the curls, etc. Same goes for Chest and Triceps.

        I used to always do chest and upper back on the same day so I could alternate without a rest period, but recently started a workout where I changed it up. It’s made me more conscious of the fact that I’m sitting around waiting to recover since I can’t just jump into the opposing muscle.

        Thanks for the advice and all you do!

  2. I love 5X5 training, M-W&F. The lower reps seem easier on aging joints. For me, rest between sets depends on the size of the muscle that I am working. Legs take the full 3 minutes for sure. Arms, not so much.

    • Yes, 5X5 training is just GREAT! Best! HR
