Just a quick question on 5x5's [Frankies]

I started doing his 5x5 routine back in late october, and at christmas I had a 2 week break, I've started doing it again and im in my second week...should I contine effectivly from scratch so that I have 10 weeks left, or should I change or add anything?
[Just incase of muscle memory]
My strength didnt actually go down when I came back, infact i've now made some gains, which was a total surprise !

Pull:
Deadlift
Bent Over BBell Row
BBell Curl

Push:
BBell Bench Press
Standing BBell Military Press
Incline DBell Bench Press

Legs:
Squat
SLDL
Leg Curls

Sometimes chuck in some shrugs as well.

Im also attemping to get in at least 3 30-40 mins steady cardio, I try to do it on seperate days, or at least as many hours apart as possible.

    I say if the gains keep coming then stick with it.

    Fair point !

    Well I think I will stick this current rountine out for another month, then just change a couple of bits around, but to still keep on the same principles of compound lifting.
