    Also the correct term is a super set, doing a set of one exercise then immediately following it with another set of a different exercise

    3 sets to failure is part of the stronglifts routine. It is changed to 3x5 with weight as soon as you can do 10 reps in the first set.

    I disagree with jspeedy, don't add in strict arm exercises, you don't need them if you are doing something like 5x5, unless you want to go for hypertrophy, at which point knock yourself out and get curling 3x12. Personally, I wouldn't though.

    I almost expected that one. It's not quite a superset, as the excercises aren't done back to back, but at even intervals. As far as I understood it when the idea was introduced, a pulling excercise with a similar route of motion makes the muscles used in a pushing excercise relax and vice versa, which helps them rest. At least it saves time that way.

    As for your previous questions, my main interest in making my own routine was due to the peculiar siutation I have with the weight rooms, and for the fun of making my own program. I think I'll be doing this program for three months. I've been weightlifting for four months, so I'm a bit of a newbie. My goals so far were 1.5xbodyweight squat and deadlift and a 1.25xbw bench.

    If you cant already do 1.5xbw squat, or haven't deloaded 3 times on your squat, dont mess with the Stronglifts programme until you can...
