I am 45 years old and have been doing the Strong Lifts 5x5 program for a few months. This is my first time working out for that length of time. I had a lot of growth in my legs and have gained strength all around. However, I am not gaining much muscle in my upper body. I read that more reps will help with muscle growth. Should I switch from 5x5 to 3x8? Should I do something else? I want to gain muscle so that I burn more calories and lose fat also to look better, I am overweight right now. Thanks, this is my first post.
