My Novice Gains have reached an end. This is the routine I have been doing, but everything is stalling now.

My 1RM has stopped at:
> Bench: 265 lbs
> Squat: 245 lbs
> Deadlift: 315 lbs
> OHP: 175 lbs

My goal is to put on 20 lbs of muscle slowly, no fat.

> What Intermediate Program should I move on to?
Hardmode: Something that isn't all Squats

Here is something from the repository
>>
5/3/1 triumvirate is good but your squat is still laughably weak
>>
>>35160769
It looks like a solid routine, I'll definitely look into it more. What's your experience with it?
>>
>>35160746
What do you recommend?
>>
All /fit/ seems to talk about is SS and SL, doesn't anyone make it to an Intermediate Program?
>>
I did Ice Cream Fitness 5x5 (inb4 blahautism)
I'm now doing Madcow 5x5

it's really fun, I hear Texas Method is REALLY brutal

if you miss workouts due to real life, then it will fuck things up
so make sure you have time to follow it to the letter

>>35161611
nope
>>
>>35161611
No, not really. People just lie about their progress, it's how you get people who're apparently still on SS and benching 2.5pl8, it's just not gonna happen really.
>>
>>35161611
i've been wondering the same, bro. i don't see myself getting more than 2 more months or so out of SS so i've been looking at intermediate programs, but i barely see it discussed here. honestly have no idea where to go from here Senpai. was thinking 5/3/1 tho.

Texas Method. Read Practical Programming.

I'm doing a modified Texas Method

I changed the Wednesday workout to
Front Squats 5x3
Bench/OHP PR

I'm too tired after Squat PRs to get the Pressing PRs on Friday, so I do them first on Wednesdays

Front Squats help me where I'm weak, and aren't so heavy as to tax my body.

Just my .02

But I'm weak,
Lifting 6mo
137.5x5 OHP
200x5 Bench
255x5 Squat
300x5 Deadlift weak as fuck
>>
>>35166210
oh i weigh 170 5'8
>>
>>35166210
have you found yourself progressing linearly on it? I was adding 10 pounds a week to everything for 5 weeks when i did it
