I've been lurking for a few months and decided to join and post so I can get some advice for my training.
Currently my main goal is strength, specifically, I would like to improve my maxes in the big 3. Eventually
I want to compete in a powerlifting competition but I would like to have a respectable total(1100lbs is my personal goal by Christmas '14) before I compete.
I'm 5'9" 200lbs ~18%bf.
Bench: 275lbs tng
Squat: 350 high bar slightly below parallel
Deadlift: 275x3 (had a lower back injury just now gettin into Dl again)
I'm currently running smolov jr for bench and squatting heavy twice a week.
What program would you suggest? Should I try madcow 5x5 or a similar program?
