Looking for a non-LP strength program

Hey guys,

So, I have been forced by my parents to put all of my equipment in the basement for the winter. That means that I cannot OLY lift, because I cannot be dropping weights inside the house. As such, I am taking the next little while to work on my strength, and would like to find a good strength program.

Just on a side note, I happen to really despise linear progression, and much prefer maxout programming, as I enjoy it more and find it more beneficial. My goal is to improve my strength. It would be a bonus if this wasnt a program that took 1.5-2 hours to complete the programming, but not a problem if it was.

Current weight and numbers (1RM's):

Bodyweight: 145
OHP: 151
FS: 255
BS: 315
DL: 325
BP: 180
C&J: 207
Sn: 170.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers, Daniel

You should try Juggernaut. Fair warning, the volume is very high, but at your age you shouldn't have any trouble recovering. Just be conservative with any additional conditioning you do.

I should mention, I stopped crossfitting around June. I was more interested in getting stronger. Maybe I'll crossfit again some time down the road.

Do you also happen to have a resource? I am having trouble finding the program online.

Re: Looking for a non-LP strength program

Maybe give the Texas Method a try. Lots of volume on Monday, light workout on Wednesday, 1 heavy set on Friday.

Looks kind of like this:
Monday:
Squat 5x5 about 80% of Friday
Press/Bench alternate 5x5 about 80% of Friday

Wednesday:
Squat 2x5 about 75% of Monday
Press 3x5 90% of Monday/Bench 3x5 75% of Monday

Friday:
Squat 5 rep max
Press/Bench 5 rep max
Deadlift 5 rep max.

Increase Friday every week. Only raise Mondays work weight when necessary.

As you progress make tiny tweaks to continue progressing such as adding chin-ups and other assistance, changing Mondays work sets around to garner progress for Friday etc.

Both 70sbig e-books have more detail on it, but that is pretty much it.

P.S. You can probably still Olympic Lift if you really want to. Just don't drop the weights. Bring them down to a hang and lower it. Its less comfortable but not impossible. It is what they used to do in the 50's-60's before bumper plates existed.

Thats probably not necessary at his level at advancement. If you're going to go that route, I'd say just do Smolov.
