wut my teams doing are to core lifts (bench and squat) on mon. and friday and the other core lifts (deadlift and clean) on wed. the number of sets and reps varies per week. We also to a bunch of different auxillury(sp.?) lifts those days as well

For strength it should be more like 5x5-8....and you gotta make sure that last rep almost kills you. I'm an athlete too, and always try to get 3-5 sets of 8 reps on every exercise while training for strength (usually just in the offseason).
