I used to do a typical body builders split of chest/back one day, legs another, etc.. Then I went to the Bill Starr 5x5 which is more of a power lifters program, less pretty beach muscles, more focus on core strength and usable athleticism, along with 5k run 5 nights a week. Then I took some time off as I was running into over training injuries in my knees and wrists.

I still do the Bill Star 5x5 for my flat bench. It was a prime contributer to me getting my max to 300 from 275 over about 6 months. +/-
