There really isn't much to add, except to emphasise this:

Getting stronger is simply about hitting the lifts as much as possible while remaining as fresh as possible. All of these routines and programmes share that one common goal, and are the author's interpretation of doing so based on the people he has worked with and things he has read and/or experienced.
So once again there is no magic in any routine. Hit the lifts as often as you can while remaining as fresh as you can. Whatever interpretation of that you choose, stick to it for a good 6 months, learn from it, reflect on it, analyse it and then you will know more about yourself.
Spending too much time on finding a great routine, or even the perfect routine is a massive waste of time. That time and energy should be spent on learning how you react to a given routine and the frequency/intensity/volume within it, learning from that experience so YOU can be your own trainer later and make your OWN routines which fit you perfectly.
