To start, I am 5'11 205 and I'm looking to compete in Powerlifting after a year or so of structured training.
My current one rep maxes are:
Deadlift-515 (most i've pulled, but it came up fairly easy)
Squat- Hard to say because the last few months i've only been doing below parallel box squats, or squats with bands or chains. None of which included singles. So i will be conservative and say around 405. Needless to say its my weakest lift and i need improvement on my form.
My goal is to achieve a 405 bench, 565 deadlift, and a 455 squat before i compete.
The question i have is, which workout regimen have you guys had success with and would suggest? I have done DC training and P/RR/S, neither of which geared specifically for PL'ing. I have done research on Westside's Conjugate method and am looking at running that. The problem is i have heard a lot of mixed reviews. Some saying its geared for lifters running juice, leaving an inadequate time for recovery for people not using it, or for lifters using equipment. At this time i only want to compete raw, so obviously i don't want to run a program geared for equipped lifters.
I am fairly uneducated when it comes to PL'ing training, so i would appreciate any feedback you guys could give me.
