Working hard at improving my leg strength - and looking for recommended programs.
When I was younger - i spent too much time doing upper body with little leg work, and have been trying to make up for it. Had some tendinitis a couple years back, and have only been seriously lifting for call it 20 months again. I've really only been squatting and deadlifting for 15-16 months:
I'm 5'10, 190 lbs. Current big lifts:
Bench: 4 reps, 270
Squat: 4 reps, 265 (getting below parallel - note that i squat after i deadlift though)
Deadlift: 3 reps 335
Standing OH Press: 5 reps 160
Bent Over Row: 5 reps for 205
I know I've got a lot of work to do to get my leg lifts where they should be, considering where my bench is. I've been pretty focused on 5x5, madcow/billy starr, and some variations of those sorts programs to better suit my schedule. Also mixed in a cycle of GVT.
I'm usually short a training partner, and train solo at the gym, so its hard to push it on programs that drop much below 5 reps until I've got one.
Any thoughts for what would be best considering where I am strength wise - more of the same? Smolov, Smolov Jr.?
