Strong Lift 5×5 is a full body training program. Evry exercise works the various muscle. Together these compound exercises work your whole body. This is what makes this programme so time efficient you can train every single muscle by doing only three exercise per workout. This can be hard to believe if you are used to training one muscle one a day by doing a dozen of exercise per workout. But you do not need to train your muscle directly for them to grow. They actually grow better with compound exercise because you can lift heavier weights. This triggers more growth.
This is why more strength is more muscle. The heavier the weight you can lift and thus the more muscular you will be. Your muscles must grow bigger to lift the heavier weights. The intensity is higher on compound exercise because you can use heavier weights. Strong lift 5×5 uses the five best compound exercises- the big five. Heare are all the muscles you will work by doing the Squat, Bench press, Overhead press, Deadlift and Barbell row every week like below?
(1)Armes:-Your biceps pull the weight to you when you Barbell row. Your triceps push the weight when you Bench/Overhead press.
(2)Shoulders:-Your hole shoulder girdle work to raise your arms when you overhead press. Your front shoulder also works to raise your arms when you bench press.
(3)Chest:-Your whole chest works to push the bar away from you when you branch press. Your upper chest works to lift the weight when you Overhead press.
(4)Forearms:-Your forearms keep the ber in your hands on all the exercise. They work very hard on deadlifts to keep your hands closed against gravity so you do not lose the ber.
(5)Calves:-Your calves work to straighten your ankles when you squat and deadlift the weight up. They also stabilize you when you Overhead/Bench press and Row.
