Hi, I’m in the market for a new workout program and I’m interested in running Texas Method (https://www.t-nation.com/training/texas-method) with some modifications for it to work as a powerbuilding routine. I’m interested in Texas method because I’m maxed out on linear progress (running nSuns) and looking for a 3 day intermediate program that I can run longterm and still make gains. I definitely want to add some aesthetic accessories, and I’m going to be clean bulking instead of drinking gallons of milk like Mark recommends lol, but with the right additions I feel like this program might work really well for me.
The main change I’m thinking of making is adding bent over rows 3-5x10 3 times a week with alternating grips (like overhand, underhand, and maybe pendlay). Several of my favorite lifters swear by frequent back training, and this also matches my aesthetic goals. Bent over row also works lower back, so I’m wondering if doing rows can replace the 5x10 hyperextensions on Wednesday, or if this will end up hurting my squat / deadlift gains.
