I wasn’t even looking for a 5×5 workout routine when I found the Madcow 5×5 spreadsheet. BUT… I sure am glad I found it. Anyway, after using it for a bit, I realized I could clean it up a bit and make it a bit more user friendly for the gym.

I really haven’t read a lot of the original Bill Starr 5×5 workout info because I really enjoyed this version. However, I did read enough to actually try using power cleans for a while instead of bent over rows.

Recently I cleaned up the spreadsheets even more and also created a landscape version. (Links are below). I don’t go into any detail on how to implement the 5×5 workout in these videos because Madcow’s info covers it very well and there is a ton of other info online too. (However, in the future I may put a video together).

At a very minimum, you need to watch the portrait version of the 5×5 spreadsheet breakdown: “5X5 Workout Routine – Madcow 5×5 Spreadsheet – PORTRAIT – Intermediate”

Also, be sure to sign up for updates! I have no idea how many people have downloaded previous versions of my spreadsheets, and now I have no way to notify them that there are new versions available. I will NOT spam you. I just want to make sure when I update the 5×5 workout spreadsheet, you will know about it.

Portrait Version Total Time: ~7min

Landscape Version Total Time: ~2min

>>LOOK HERE>> The Madcow 5×5 Workout Spreadsheets have moved to Violent Zen™ because it’s so much cooler over there.

I may act like a 12yr old a lot of the time, but that's because I have a genetic defect that will not allow me grow up. HOWEVER, I do take strength training and fitness very seriously and I love using what I know to help others reach their fitness goals and avoid the bazillion mistakes I've made in my 25+ yrs of training. Since I don't know everything, I never stop learning. Note: I am no longer a "certified" trainer, but I truly understand more about fitness and health now than I ever did with that official piece of paper.
