Looking for an overall workout that focuses on the big 3: bench, deadlift, and squat. if anyone has a good workout that includes all 3 besides the wbb1-3 workouts im all ears. id like to see what is effective for others.
thanks
Mike

I play soccer at a reasonably high level, and Im allowed miss training sessions because I train in the gym, but theres no point in a "soccer focused" workout, Just lift some weights! :)

It means your countrys senior team, professional level i dont know what you call it, not an underaged side.

Having a huge deadlift, bench press and squat is not going to raise the level of your game.

You need to take a look at your sport, your weak points and figure out what movements you should be working on and drilling those weak areas.

If maximal strength is truely your weak area then I'd say work on the big three but follow a more traditional approach.

Bilateral lifting in a unilateral dominated sport is not going to transfer as well compared to focusing on unilateral work and explosive movements.

I think it's designed for football players but it's still a great program and it'll definately make you stronger. I followed it last spring and it worked really well.
