    My fav methods are FBW and push, pull, legs. After an injury or long deload i usually use FBW for 4 weeks and than i switch to push/pull/legs.

    Got back into 5/3/1.. or 351

    I know the progression's a bit slow, but I'm finding out if I'm consistent with the eating and recovery ..it does a decent job.

    Any other decent PL programs out there? I've seen quite a few, tried a couple. Just curious as to what some other folks are into

    I always switch it up... Never the same thing. Might not work for everyone but does for me.

    5x5 for first exercises. Then 10x10 german volume training. Near end of workout 3x20. End of workout back heavy 3x8. Finishing set 1x50 for burn out. Nice shock been doing for the past month. Do this workout with almost every muscle group.

    I like do agonist and antagonist supersets. Chest@back, biceps@ triceps, shoulders@legs, traps@abs. Pick 3 exercises per mm group and pair them up antagonist to agonist. And do them where your doing the opposite direction and movement. As if you mirroring the exercise before it. On small mm group days as an active rest. This allows to hit all mom's twice a week and get HIIT cardio sessions in all week. It volume training. Excellent for endurance in cardio and muscular wise. Great fat cutter and toner.

    Just started a powerlifting program and so far Iím really liking it. Havenít trained this way in years. It was a natural progression though. Even my bb style workouts were focused on progressive weights. If Iím not getting stronger I never saw the point in going to the gym at all

    I typically do whatever mike ohearn says he has to be the biggest natural guy in the fitness scene. I think he gives great advice i am even thinking of buying one of those peanut butter shirts of his.

    6-7 days a week, 1hr each day and moderate weight/volume with emphasis on TUT ... seems to work well for hypertrophy for me at my age. Used to love more of a Powerlifting/Powerbuilding routing, but my joints just can't take it any longer and recovery just takes too long. I like to lift too much to have days off.

    Super heavy, low reps and explosive motions with momentum gets me jacked and quick.

    Also bothers my joints.

    For legs, it works but also high rep squats blows my legs up, and I mean reps of 20-30 for example. But I will admit, I hate hate hate, high rep squats. Mentally I fail first.

    Just like when I was competing in Strongman, there was this one event that always F*** with my head. It's called Conans Wheel and you use your forearms and you have to pick up a heavy weight and walk in circles with it. The furthest distance wins. This one pictured was from Californias Strongest Man and it was 2 ATV's, and it weighed 800lbs.

    Like high rep squats, the second I begin it, I instantly regret it and just want to put it right back down. LOL

    Lots of good strength methods just make sure that your not some big, strong useless lump with no conditioning no flexibility who cant do more than 10 pullups or clear a fence if he had to.

    At the age of 50 and multiple major surgeries on knees and an elbow along with a torn pec I was able to bench a lousy 315x1 from a single with 405 just 5 years earlier...I changed my training mentality and did legs on Wednesday and all upper body on Saturday...I am now 61, fairly painless free and can still bench 315x1...on upper day I do 3 working sets of bench and pulldowns and 2 work sets of shoulders, biceps and triceps along with crunches...in and out in one hour...

    6 days a week, or 5 depending on what my body is telling me. All compound lifts come first with isolation exercises/machines after.
