    ive read alot on westside, DC, 5X5, russian style. but as of late ive been doing very basic heavy lifts, and my muscles have responded better than all the other styles ive tried.

    your on the right track with the basic heavy exercises. i literally worked out for years with meager results until i started only doing basic stuff. i would work on getting that deadlift up past 450. probably a few more sets of 3 or 2 on the basics and 2-3 sets of 10-20 on the pullovers and other assistance stuff. also i would do cleans once a week only,doing a full clean and press from the ground on the first rep of each set. add in some high pulls or snatch grip pulls, one arm db presses(heavy singles) and you should get pretty strong. size amounts to nothing if there is no strength/power for it all.

    Get yourself a copy of "Practical Programming for Strength Training." ([ame="http://www.amazon.com/Practical-Programming-Strength-Training-Rippetoe/dp/0976805413/ref=sr_1_1/002-3504021-3760010?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=11 83855371&sr=8-1"]Amazon link[/ame])

    I don't have enough experience to answer your question, but that book might
