Any other intermediate routines focusing on strength for big 3 and some bodybuilding accessories?

I'm biased towards full body or at least somewhat high frequency and volume and less typical BBing work, but I guess thats not what you're looking for. Go on muscleandstrength.com and search for any powerbuilding routine. PHUL or Canditos routines might be good. Canditos is labeled as powerlifting but its still full of accessory work and look like other powerbuilding routines like IA SPBR. The Iron Addicts forum has some good ones but I'd look at the one's with 2x freq a week for squat and bench.

Why do you need to follow someone else's routine? Focus on progressive overload and experiment with different rep and set ranges and make your own program.

I feel like people swear by programs way after they should be actually figuring out what works for them specifically.

Oh shit was it scaphoid neck fracture? Those can be a bitch to heal due to poor blood supply.

I agree on that it would be beneficial in the long run to learn how to make your own program. The problem is that it requires a great deal of knowledge about programming itself, what your actual weaknesses are (many people do heavy short ROM rack pulls when their DL weakness is off the floor) and to not undertrain or more commonly overtrain yourself. Many less experienced lifters have not developed those skills and that awareness yet. Written routines are of course never going to be as specific or maybe effective as standard templates but at least they will work and are in most cases fool-proof. The ideal scenario imo is to get a coach (if you have the money) so you get help from a professional, an outsider without the self-bias, to better understand yourself and then take that knowledge to program your own training.

+1... I think it's good to use other people's programs as a starting point but no program is going to help you reach your goals faster than one built around you and your goals as an individual. Same with diet

At the same time though theres a lot of overthinking... you could whittle it all down to like 5 points. Figure out and work towards your goals and on your weaknesses. Listen to and learn from pain. Dont be afraid to get a little fat. Bust ass. Don't overthink. Etc. etc.

I agree that a coach would be optimal but if you consider yourself an intermediate lifter I think you should have a pretty good understanding on programming, weak points etc.

As a side note I think people pick rack pulls over deadlifting from a deficit because it's much easier to use higher weights. Working out your weak points is hard on the ego.

Btw I'm not saying programs are bad but if you are relying on them for years and years you aren't really learning what is best for your body.

Yea if you don't know what your weaknesses are after a few years of lifting confused.gif

And Im not even saying I'm immune... it took me 4 years to figure out that I have to eat to make gains and 5 to figure out my arms won't grow without direct bro work

If I had started on a good program and done my research I'd have learned this 2, 3 years ago

Most "good programs" don't include bro work though.

SMH at the internet.

Also coldsnap post pics or we're all going to assume you're lying.

Thanks for the help guys.

I really only need help for programming the big 3 for PL style training.

I'm usually able to pick out my weaknesses and add in the necessary accessories movements.

my chronic wrist tendentious is so annoying. i don't think it will ever go away (unless i stop lifting).

anyone else have the same issue? would wraps help?

I'm sort of against the typical RHET mentality.

I've gotten the best results after I stopped doing SS and "clean bulking."

Dirty ass bulk and brosplit with PL influences is where it's at.

I should post my routine, CS would probably cry.

Should I start deadlifting more than one set to failure a week?

Between you and TK, I'm curious to see how much muscle you gained on the dirty bulk.
