Be careful with the 5x5 routine... You reach a point where the weight increase ends up coming on faster than you are actually getting stronger. As I was nearing 300# squat, adding 5# every few days was just too much.

Strength and hypertrophy aren't mutually exclusive. You could start a 4 day strength/hypertrophy split and experience substantial gains in both.

Remember, everyone is different. What works for some will not work for everyone. I train my son who did his first bodybuilding event last June, he's 16 yrs old. I've ben a trainer for years. So from yrs of experience and being a trainer, find someone that can educate you on proper technique. Its more important than anything. Don't worry about how much you can lift, worry about proper form. Strength and mass will come with time. Diet is 80+ percent of lifting as well. If you have any questions, shoot me a pm.

He is right about the diet. Forming your body has to do with 2 things ALONE, Protein intake and target blood flow. I competed bodybuilding for 5yrs until I got hurt. Your muscles get nowhere if you stay in a planned rep routine. Look at the "everydayers" that keep the same reps day in and out and look the same all the time. You have to push yourself each set. Not with heavy weights but it has to be done to failure so more blood can be pumped to that specific muscle (feeling "a pump"). If you split up different muscles each day your not concentrating enough blood to that specific muscle to grow. Protein makes the growth final. Just remember the formula. To maintain muscle mass you consume 1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight. To increase muscle consume 1.5-1.75 game per pound of bodyweight. With your age make sure Glutamine is part of your daily vitamins. It assists your muscle fibers in the repairs of your workouts. Like potassium only better.
