    I pretty much try all kinds of workouts because everything dont work for everyone so the best to find out is to try them for yourself

    This is a perfectly timed bump. Thanks, @psulemon. I'm looking to move on from Stronglifts. After reading all the Intermediate program links, I think I'm going to try 5/3/1. Time to go determine my current 1RM! :D

    hey props on this post!
    I'd add the Squat Everyday program on there but may in it's own category of "Advanced lifters who understand the importance of stretching and rolling everyday"...or something like that. This program worked wonders for me but It never once talked about stretching or rolling...which, whe you're squatting everyday is a recipe for problems.

    Thanks. Is that program a structured program or like a challenge? If there are details, i can look at it.

    I agree. Its the program that got me into lifting. The only thing I don't like about it, is volume isn't ideal.

    It's close to Bulgarian, except the focus is on Squats and/or Squat variations.
