5x5 routines are weightlifting routines that consist of big lifts such as the Bench Press, Squat, Deadlift, etc. Most people recommend routines like Starting Strength or Stronglifts if you're starting out. Many people swear by them and these routines have even created a cult-like following. I've only tried Stronglifts, so my perspective will only be from this particular workout routine. My concern is that Stronglifts focuses too much on squats. I understand that squats are the best exercise for increasing overall strength, but including squats in every single workout seems to be overkill. Furthermore, other muscle groups in my body feel neglected while on this routine. I'm wondering if anyone feels the same or would like to chip in their thoughts.
