Texas Method


New member
Was curious if anyone here has used the Texas Method Program for Intermediate lifting and had any good results from it.

never heard of it

Its basicly a simplified 5x5 system over a 3 day split that has the lifter attempting new 1, 2, or 3 rm on the 3rd day on selected lifts.

Eg ;

Day 1

Squat 5x5
Bench 5x5
Row 5x5
Dips 5x5
Chins 5x5

Day 2 ( all lifts 10% less that 5x5 max )

Front Squat 3x3
OH Press 3x3
Row 3x3

Day 3 ( try for new 1, 2, or 3 rm )


Set up so you are attempting new PR's every Day 3
Its a solid program. This year, 3 of the 8 man US team to go to the Pan American games in Olympic weightlifting are coached by me, and all have used the "texas method" quite a bit in their training. Like any program, its not the end all be all of training, but it gets you stronger and bigger.

Here are three videos of a 265lb, 19 year old kid clean and jerking 446 lbs, a 204 lb kid clean and jerking 408 lbs, and a 235lb man clean and jerking 464 lbs, respectively, all drug free, and all built a lot of their strength on programs similar or exactly the same as what is now called the "texas method", although I didnt call it that when we first started using it. Someone else came up with that name.
