Ok I've looked at some sample powerlifting routines, and coming from a backround of bodybuilding and max-ot style routines, I don't really feel comfortable doing all those sets, is it possible to become very strong without doing 5 working sets?
Hmm, most powerlifters only max out ONCE a week, for one set but then they do assistance exercises.
Go look into some westside stuff, it's completely different from what you've been doing.

I just found a few month old muscle and fitness with an article about ed coan, there is a sample routine of his that is more to what I am looking for. It looks like this:
Squat-7-10 sets of 2-8 reps
single leg press- 2 sets of 10-12 reps
leg extension-2 sets of 10-12 reps
seated calf raise- 3 sets of 10-12 reps
crunches-3 sets of 20 reps
Bench press-7-10 sets of 2-8 reps
close grip bench- 2 sets of 10-12 reps
Inlcine bench-2 sets of 10-12 reps
Overhead extension/lying french press- 2 sets of 10-12 reps
heavy weighted crunch- 3 sets of 20 reps
Deadlift- 7-10 sets of 2-8 reps
SLDL- 2 sets of 8-10 reps
Bent over barbell row-2 sets of 8-10 reps
T-bar row-2 sets of 8-10 reps
pull up/pull down- 2 sets of 8-10 reps
seated calf raise-2 sets of 20
crunches- 3 sets of 20
Military press- 5 sets of 2-8 reps
rear delt raise- 3 sets of 8-10 reps
lateral raise- 3 sets of 8-10 reps
tri pressdown-3 sets of 8-10 reps
weighted dips-2 sets of 15 reps
barbell curl- 2 sets of 20 reps
Heavy weighted crunch- 2 sets of 20 reps
IS this OK to do or is it way to much? If so could someone tell em where to get a good routine where they incorporate all the muscles liek this one and not just the 3 main lifts . The websites I went to said only do one assitance excersize but this way I can get every muscle. Thanks for all your help.
