    Get "Starting Strength: Basic Barbell Training" and go from there. There's a routine in that book that will get your strength up as well.

    Well, there is Olympic Power Lifting, clean & jerk, snatch and there is Power Lifting that is actually Weight Lifting, Bench, Squat, Deads.

    Olympic Power Lifting (C&J, Snatch) is primarily velocity based. Competitive Weight Lifting (bench, squat, deads) is primarily strength based. The training strategies are different and the workout routines are different, so which one are you referring to and I'll try to offer some advice.

    i don't know about how the typical powerlifter eats. but i am a powerlifter and this is how i eat (this should like you straight to the post with the diet rundown):

    Kabuki's "VIDEO" Log - a little crazy fun for everyone

    I would do some research on training on
    Westside BarbellŪ"Often Imitated but never duplicated"
    EliteFTS - Powerlifting and Strength Training Products and Knowledge for Lifters, Athletes, Coaches, and Trainers

    Both sites also have a huge selection of books as well that you can order.

    You can view sample programs and video's of lifts on my log as well.

    Then you would train at various degrees of range of motion in the bench, dead and squat. Meaning partial sqauts, half squats, full squats. Block Bench Presses. If you don't have any blocks to rest on your chest (which you need buddies for anyway) you can use the squat rack and let the parallel bars be your block. Partial Press, Half Press, Full Bench. Same idea with Deads. Do rack deads at different heights, partial, half, full.

    The weight you use on a "normal" basis should be heavy enough to fail around 5 reps, and you would train in the 1-3 rep range on heavy days.
