    intermediate or advanced program?

    Background: I have been lifting consistently for about 4-5 years now. I did Rippetoes SS routine then a 5x5 I set up myself with an ungodly amount of volume (I actually responded pretty well).

    Then I did Layne Norton's hybrid routine and loved it but because of my new work schedule had to switch. I did a 5/3/1 then BACK to the 5x5....

    I recently hit new PRs in everything before getting sick and falling down a notch or two:

    SQUAT: 5 X 5 X 340
    OH PRESS 5 X 5 X 160
    BENCH 5 X 5 X 105LBS DBs
    DEADS 3 X 5 X 415

    AT: 198LBS at 12% BF

    I need a new routine because I can't stand my old 5x5 anymore and want to maybe do something new. I can't understand HTC12 no matter how many times I read it (lol maybe I'm just dumb) and now have a bias for high volume workouts.

    Am I intermediate still ? What kind of routine do ya think will work best? I JUST WANNA BE STRONG!!!
