Ok i understand progression. Either more weight or more reps every time you lift so that each time you get better, etc etc
A lot of people have suggested me using All PRos routine, which looks fine...but it seems it might progress to slowly???
Only every 5 week do you move up the weight for 5 lbs??
Since im pretty new, i find some weeks i can slap on 10lb a week and move up while staying in the same rep range..
so could someone explain this to me?? also is this for more size or strength??

It may seem, at first, that progress is slow. You won't think so after you've been on the program for a while though, and you're continuously adding weight and/or reps (and muscle mass, if you're eating and resting adequately), while others at your same level, training with hit-or-miss "routines" are bungling around, getting nowhere.
Take another look at TexAss's post. He's spot-on.
And disregard the comment about "advanced" beginners.No brain, no gain.
You can't out-train bad nutrition.

All Pro's routine.......
In All Pro's you increase the weight around 10% at the start of every five week mesocycle. So your progress for squat or stiff leg dead should look something like:
if you can keep it up for a year(10 cycles). If you can, you keep going. You are looking at a 365lb squat and SLD for your next cycle, four plates(405) is just around the corner.
Even if you had to start with only 95lbs, you'd be at two plates, ie 225 x 8-12 for your last cycle, and your 1RM would be approaching three plates(315lbs). And you'd keep going so long as you eat enough to sustain progress.
Hint, if you don't eat enough to sustain gains, you won't get to pulling and squatting three plates for lots of reps.Beginners:
Beyond novice, 5 3 1 or see above:)
Unless it is obvious to anyone who isn't blind that you lift weights, you might still benefit from a little more attention to big basic barbell exercises for enough reps:).
