    Powerlifting routines


    Ok so I know everyone loves westside and 5/3/1. But my goal is not consistency over a long period of time. I have not plateaued yet. What is the best powerlifting routine I can do for quicker gains than the 2 above stated. (I do not contest to them being the best) but as I have not plateaued I have no need for slow consistent progression. I want to add as much strength as I can by december

    Those are the best cookie cutter routines for fast strength and size. Hands down. Go to a powerlifting gym. Hire a trainer. Hire a nutritionist. Most gyms use those programs but you may be able to get more out of it since they can pick your form apart.

    This, there's other Powerlifting routines, I actually got a link to a good site for overall Olympic lift training (thanks JudoJosh). When I'm home I'll post it up here too

    What about something like stronglifts? It says you add weight every workout. Seems like you'd make much more progress quickly on that. (until you plateau where then something like 5/3/1 seems more beneficial)

    If you can handle it, and really know what you are doing in form and weights according to your progression, then give this workouts a shot. Warning they are more geared for a experienced lifter, but as far as progression and strength...damn they just look amazing.

    How much strength are you honestly expecting to add in such a short period of time? You're approaching this completely wrong in the sense that you're trying to rush something that takes years to truly learn and understand. I'll say this to you again: you are a wrestler, not a bodybuilder or a powerlifter. Your focus should be on addressing your wrestling training followed by your weight and then resistance training.

    What's your current weight and weight class? Those are far more important than getting your bench up.

    Westside is going to be your best bet, but you don't have nearly enough time to really get anything out of any routine since you're about to start dieting.

    When cutting for wrestling my diet consists of nothing but protein shakes and salad. I've never had any trouble with gaining strength on this diet in the past. And since the season starts in December and continues through February I feel I have a good amount of time

    No carb ups? No Solid protein sources?

    That's a freaking awful diet, but that's beside the point. You don't have much time at all. I'm going to guess practice starts in November and gaining strength in-season for any non-lifting sport is not likely and the goal is to really minimize loss of strength.

    Well that diet for me shreds fat and not only preserves muscle but allows for new muscle to be built. My strength continues to go up during season maybe that's weird and not normal but that's how it's always been

    If it's working as you claim, then why are you changing it?

    I can tell you for a fact it is not the routine. Gains in muscle mass and strength are strongly correlated to nutrition, without a proper one, it is normal that the outcomes are not ideal or the one's we hope for.

    If your calories are lower. Limit your attempts on max effort day to mostly doubles and singles as you work up to a max. And drop speed day volume by a couple sets to ensure proper recovery. instead of 10x2 on week 1 of three week wave, use 8 or 9 sets working down to 6 or 7 sets on by your third week.
