Because of what I'm after, I have to build my own programs. I do Powerbuilding, because I want to be both big and strong. However, as of late my program has focused more on the bodybuilding aspect of things. I'm plenty big, and I want to focus on getting stronger. I used the 5/3/1 template, however, I just ended up getting weaker. I'm a volume guy.
So, here's what I've come up with. Anyone who actually takes the time to read it all and can offer some advice, I absolutely thank you.
My first compound movement, I rest for as long as I need. The following two compounds, I rest 2 minutes. When it comes to the hypertrophy sets, I only rest 15-30 seconds.
Saturday - Push Day A
Flat Bench - 3 sets of 5, sets done at 80% of my 1RM.
Dips - at a body-weight of 265lb for 5 sets of 5
Over-Head Dumbbell Press - 70% of my 1RM [may switch to barbell, as those dumbbells will get heavy, and getting them up is a bitch]
Machine Flies - 3 sets of 10-15 at 50-60% of my 1RM
Triceps Rope Pressdown - 3 sets of 10-15
Shoulder Lateral Raise - 3 sets of 10-15
Behind The Neck Press - 3 sets of 10-15
Cardio: 15-20 minute incline walk

Lat Pull Down - 3 sets of 5
Yates Rows - 5x5
T-Bar Row - 5x5
Hammer Strength Shrugs w/ 2second pause at top - 3 sets of 10

I grab two 45lb plates together and hustle.

PUSH DAY B
Over-Head Press - 3x5

Muscle Snatch & Walk - 2 reps and a 35ft walk with the weight over-head, 3 sets of that. For those who don't know, a Muscle Snatch is where you basically do a Power Clean, but instead of catching it, the second it gets about neck level you whip your hands underneath and press it.
