The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    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!!!
