i'm going to let my other thread leak in here, but i don't want to take it over:
reading practical programming and understanding the transition from novice > intermediate > advanced and having decided to pursue powerlifting while using madcow's 5x5 to train strength, what is the next logical programming method? according to PP weekly periodization is next, which madcow does, so is the implication that madcow's should last years until the advanced phase? or should I introduce more personalized methods? what training significance would my desire to powerlift impact?
