If you're already enjoying Rippetoe's Starting Strength workout, you may want to consider his Texas Method afte your stall out on Starting Strength. This is described in his book, "Practical Progression for Strength Training, 2nd Edition" (There is also a short writeup at The Texas Method - Starting Strength Wiki ), but the quick version is that it's a 3-day a week program, but instead of adding weight to the bar every session, you add weight to the bar every WEEK. The workout introduces the concept between a medium/light/heavy day, but follows a similar format to starting strength. Basically Monday is a high volume / medium intensity day, wednesday is a low volume / low intensity day (to help recover), and Friday is a low volume / high intensity day, where you try to improve on the 5RM you did the Friday before. Generally deadlifting is only done on Fridays, but squats (or in some cases front squats) are done every day of the week, but again at different intensities during the week.
