View Full Version : Power/Strength routine.

I'm wondering if anyone has a power/oly lifting program. Right now I'm doing olympic lifting but since I have no plans to compete I would like to get a more rounded program.

This is an example of the program I'm doing right now:

Day 1
Overhead squats 4x5
Drop snatch 3x5
Snatch pulls from hang 3x5
Snatch deadlifts 3x3, 1x2(heavy)
Front squats 4x5
Good mornings 3x5

As you can see it is mostly olympic lifting. I would like to get a program that combines olympic lifting with strongman/powerlifting type of stuff. I really like overhead squats, power cleans and power snatchs.

Does anyone have a program that has a bit more benching, deadlifting, rowing etc?

I would like to workout 3 days per week if I can.

Read this (http://www.olympus.net/personal/cablebar/5X5.htm) and this (http://www.olympus.net/personal/cablebar/QUALITY3.htm), then let me know if you have any more questions.

Thanks guys,

Powerman, that powerlifting routine under the 2nd link you posted looks pretty good. Is it enough though?

I was planning on cycling between a cutting and bulking diet because I need to lose a bit of weight before I start eating big again. Will a routine like this build muscle at all? Not really worried just curious.
