Programming is very individualized when it comes to powerlifting. Got to find what works best for you and what keeps you injury free. I like building strength with different rep and set schemes and variations of the big 3 over a period of time then testing strength.

Powerlifting training is pretty individual. It also changes based on your own weaknesses and which Meso/Micro cycle you are in (how far away from competition/maxing out you are). Its best to read about strength principles and apply them yourself.

2 free articles with a lot of good stuff in them.

http://www.jtsstrength.com/articles/2014/11/11/periodization-powerlifting-definitive-guide/

http://www.jtsstrength.com/articles/2013/12/03/nonsense-periodization-powerlifting/

Also suggest Dr. Mike Israetel's Scientific Principles of Strength Training (dig around, you can find it for free).

My training is based on RTS Manual by Mike Mike Tuchscherer. Yet again, its a book about principles (mostly RPE) that you apply yourself.

Beyond 5/3/1 is also another good read. It might seem simple and boring but introduces a lot of principles without you having to really think hard about it.

edit: I am not saying don't try the popular programs but instead, if you do try them, think critically about what worked and what did not. Each program has a different way of thinking about/attacking problems. Cherry pick what you find works to form your own way of thinking.

@ezvmoneybeast For people starting powerlifting based programs i would always say to try start with something based around Linear Progression and then MILK THAT SHIT.
When u stall, move onto a program like beyond wendler 531.

After this i like something different with more volume like Johnny Candito's 6-week strength program.. or a for more than a 6 week cycle then move into a campbell PRS and all these programs are free online with excel based spreadsheets for them.

Do you plan on competing? I'm just curious to what your goals are? If I remember right, you have the most shredded legs of anyone on this forum, so what are you after here with power lifting?
