Im a newby currently starting a lengthy bulk phase, feel like my diets on point just wanted some thoughts on my training regime.

Im looking at a push pull split, training 3 or 4 days a week its based around stronglifts programme but ive tweaked it slightly.

5x5 for all excercises except deadlifts which is 1x5

Workout A

BENCH PRESS
DEADLIFT
BARBELL SHOULDER PRESS
DIPS

Workout B

CLOSE GRIP PULL UP
SQUAT
UPRIGHT ROW
WIDE GRIP PULL UP

Getting 3 or 4 rest days a week trying to leave a rest day in between each workout, started this week and feel like ive been hit by a train!! but it feels good, feels like my whole body is working hard.

Anyone followed a similar routine and got results?

Expand it to Push/Pull/Legs. If your just getting started I'd try a full body routine 3x a week.

@Method.. I wouldn't advise him to move to PPL he's prob not ready for that kinda thing.
However if he is total beginner a full body is a good idea.
Otherwise...
@montana84
5x5 is a great program with a standard template u should use not configure urself.

Just do the stronglifts 5x5 routine and add pushups and pullups as your accessory work. You said you are a noob so you shouldn't be coming up with your own routine. And doing 5x5 of pushups and pullups is going to be really easy...I did this and would do 3 to 5 sets to failure **after you perform the core lifts.

its weighted dips and pull ups 5 is failure for me. but get the point, stick to the programme and add from there on. still recovering from this workout from 4 days ago!!
