If it's traditional periodization it's probably not that great anyway.. and yes, it's for advanced/elite lifters. So unless your strength numbers are like 2.5-3x+ for your bodyweight you probably shouldn't be doing that.

If you're looking for a program 99.99% of the time you need a linearized one either beginner like Starting Strength or intermediate like Bill Starr's 5x5. The experienced lifters generally tend to know what they are doing so they don't need to look for one as they are getting coached or they know enough to make their own.
