    Yes do you have access to a gym?

    The plyo routines are good, but only so good.

    Find a solid program you like and go from there. You do not need to hit each body part twice a week. Personally, I would go with Wendler 5/3/1. A solid program that...

    Your question wasn't clearly written but I think i get it.

    You should NOT be able to beat your 1RM for reps, in your first month and if you did, you didn't do a true 1RM.

    Strong is KING

    1. Examine current program
    2. Find weak points.
    3. Get STRONGER
    4. Fix weak points.

    Not always as simple but sometimes less is more.

    So start with your program.
