But before I do, I need to know if I am being a wussy.

SL has gotten to the point that I can barely finish a work out. Well over an hour to complete. I took a break and went back at it with 3x5 and the result was the same. I don't think I am recovering enough between workouts.

My lifts are

DL 255

Squat 240

bench 160

OH press 115

Row 160


I eat a lot, fairly clean and lots of sleep.

I have done a single workout of madcow and it felt pretty light, but of course that will change in a few weeks.

The SL program says to switch from 5x5 to 3x5 to 1x5 and then to madcow or another intermediate program. I just don't see how I can to make progress with SL

I am sure madcow is a good program, but are there others that may be better for me? Why?

Big and strong is my main goal.
Nice job, Goat. Welcome to the forum, and welcome to the big and strong club. I say, "NOT a wuss." You demonstrate the finest quality a lifter can have, sticktoitiveness. You'd do well to take BTB up on his offer.
