Thoughts on the 5 x 5 Workout Program

Trying to get back into the swing of things, just curious as to who has tried the 5 x 5 workout program and your thoughts on it. I'm by no means an expert, but it seems like so little exercises. 3 exercises, 5 reps by 5 sets. Doesnt seem like a whole lot to me, but what do I know. Just curious on your guys thoughts and so forth...

what workout are you reffering to? 5x5 has been around as long as working out has.

if you are new to weight lifting, you should start here:

Umm honestly, I thought I seen someone reference the 5 x 5 workout on here. I'm not necessarily new to lifting, did it all throughout highschool, then kind of strayed away from it the last couple years. I am going into LE so definitly looking to get back into the swing of things. Really looking to gain mass and so forth. I know all kinds of different workouts and so forth, whether it be with a barbell, kettle bell, dumbell, etc. Just trying to get a good workout program to follow, maybe 3-4 days a week.
