One of my favorite ways to set up a session for strength is to work slowly up to a heavy triple, deuce, or even a single. Not a full max, but very close. Then I go back down to something around 65-75% for 4-6 sets of 3 or 4 reps, but I focus on speed and form. Working up to heavy weights first primes your CNS to fire more fibers and also warms you up, which makes the lighter weight seem like nothing, and makes it very easy to explode hard.

A session like this also doesn't burn you out like a stricly heavy session. I train with high frequency, usually doing either deadlift, squat, or a combination of the 2 every other day. Combining heavy sessions with lighter, more explosive sessions is the only way to train with that kind of frequency.
