Best Method to Increase PLs


#1

I'm a beginner/intermediate lifter looking to gain max strength in PLs.
Any recommendation on the best method to follow?
Been doing DL + BP 3-5 times per week. 2 sets of 3-5 reps. Has worked well. Haven't done SQ too often and not sure if I should just throw squats in every other. i.e. Alternate between DL + SQ.
Any advice appreciated.

Why not try something similar, but opposite: squat 3x a week, but go heavy/light/medium. Do DLs on light squat day, just 1x a week. Fit Bench work and additional lifts where you feel it would be good.

Either that, or basic Westside, where you would rotate between ME SQ/DL every other week. Tate's "The Eight Keys" should give you plenty of ideas.
