Alright guys, I know we all see programs and read all the various programs around the interwebs. Thought I would put up a thread for everyone to have ONE place to post links to threads, or just the program itself.

I have tried the Sheiko method before. It is a TON of volume. Definitely helped with my bench but not so much for the other lifts.

surprised nobody has already chipped in with this: -

http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_article/sports_body_training_performance/how_to_build_pure_strength

jim wendlers 5/3/1... anybody can run this, not limited just to powerlifters, ran it myself for 4-5 cycles and had brilliant results, at a different point in my training right now or would still be with it, if you want to get strong and build a solid foundation, its the way to go, will probably go back at some point... if you want proof of results look up ben seath!

another good one: - http://www.elitefitness.com/forum/weight-training-weight-lifting/westside-barbell-basic-template-469668.html

a nice breakdown of how the westside templates work and how to apply them, however if you are looking for something a bit more black and white see below...

another westside: - http://www.elitefitness.com/forum/weight-training-weight-lifting/basic-9-week-westside-program-184837.html

as it says in the articles probably the most widely spread routine used by lifters as of today, all pretty good starting points!

The Juggernaut method is a really good program that yields constant progress.

http://www.scribd.com/doc/60246615/4/Juggernaut-Method-Philosophy <-- This is a part of the ebook that you can buy from elitefts.

It helps build strength and size at the same time. You are able to change the program to cater to your needs and weaknesses. You will never use singles. The lowest reps you bust out are, ultimately, a 3 rep max. And everything is based off your 1-rep max.

Can't find exact links, as theres articles all over the place. But I was fortunate enough to work with Neil Hill back in 2009-2010 and I really enjoyed his Y3T program because it promotes constantly changing your routine instead of following the same exercises, in the same order, for the same reps, week after week. 1st week is low volume, low reps, heavy weights. Then 2nd week is mod volume & mod reps. Then a 3rd week of ball busting, all out workouts consisting of supersets, triple drops, giant sets, etc etc. Then back to 1st week. Worked very well for me. I know House has seemed to like it as well since he's started working with Neil.

This is for Y3T, I am planning on running it soon.
