Usin three different programs for the three big lifts. I'll ad links to each later.

Union of Bolton, Kroc, and Robertson. lol.

Figured these all work well together since they're based on progressive overload and the benchpress and deadlift (hardest lifts for me to progress on) are spaced out over 3 months, and the squat (easiest lift for me to gain on) has just a four week cycle.

Also, heaviest week for me on my squats I don't do any deadlifting, which also works well to my advantage.

I'll use supplementary exercises where needed/if needed.
