    Simple Strength Program by Sebastian Oreb(Australian Strength Coach)

    He had articles on his website I have no idea if he still has them but through writing those articles he wrote very basic program. It consisted of doing at least 3 to four exercises per session each around 5 sets and 5 reps and specifically he said it does not matter number of those.

    Okay so I tried it and my overhead press got from 50kg to 80kg for 5 reps in like 2 and half months.

    It is true that you dont feel like you trained enough after the session but according to him thats the idea so the next time you come on the same exercise you increase it for progression. So I am just posting this here if anyone wants to experiment here it is. As He said there is no need to complicate things.

    I know those are articles from him but I made simple plan from those articles just doing 3 to four exercises on each day on the plan and it worked for every exercise. But I am mostly proud for overhead press. Even tho for some of you it may not seem enough but for me it was cool.

    It's a popular approach and works well for a while for people not previously trained. (Or... people who have trained before but never in anything like this method)

    See an explanation of the idea and how the concept dates back to ancient Greece

    https://stronglifts.com/5x5/#Why_This_Works

    It will eventually run out of progress and you'll have to use different methods to continue, usually good for around 3-9 months (time varies a lot depending on the person, usually longer time if they were a complete novice or shorter time if they'd just never trained like this befire)

    I disagree that it doesn't matter how many exercises and which choices. It's possible to make good choices and terrible choices. If someone in novice and so will benefit from basic 5*5 then they're novice enough to require guidance and exercise selection etc etc.

    If the 5*5 approach is still working for you... Stick with it. When it starts to plateau come back here and ask again

    Edit: respect for OHP. It's my own favourite lift. 5*80kg is strong! What's that compared to bodyweight?
    Faith in Jesus first and faith in squats second.
    Then other details will start to slot themselves into place.
