Perhaps a powerlifting routine, since you obviously love moving heavy ass iron and to bring that squat up to where you would like it to be.
Thanks Squatter! I appreciate the encouragement.
I am going to stay in the realm of a powerlifting routine. Because you said it best, I love moving heavy ass iron!!! However it is also important to me to make muscle mass gains.
So while strength and power is priority, looking strong is also a goal. So I guess any routine I do will have a "PowerBuilding" approach to it.
Big but boring has peaked my interest as of late.

Steve, thanks for being so supportive and so helpful. I really appreciate it.
With your help and the help of some others, this routine has been successful beyond my expectations. Not only that, but I have learned a lot from you guys as of late. And this is the reason while I am hesitant to change things up completely.
Having said that, my gut is telling me it's time to make a change. 5/3/1 has really peaked my interest for a few different reasons. I think I want to give it a few months. Probably spring into summer.
However, I do not expect 5/3/1 to be or think it is the end all be all. And I am more than just a little interested in eventually getting back to "non-coventional/less than popular" power building methods such as the ones we merely started to touch on while I was running this routine.
