Default Question about Master's Program (6 weeks)

Okay, so I've finally seen the light about only hitting the gym 3x's a week as an (almost) 41 year old Master lifter. I need a program, though, as I will still just do way more work than I should, and I have don't manage my intensity and volume very well.

So, I've been looking at Greg's Master's Program he posted a while ago. I'm thinking about running it and seeing where I go. My lifts have been very stagnant lately, and I need something to get them moving again. My biggest weakness is strength related primarily, both in pulls/DL's and squats.

Best lifts ever are:
Snatch - 90kg
CJ - 120kg
Clean - 121kg
Back Squat - 155kg
Front Squat - 135kg

However, these are a couple years old, and I would like to get back to them. The last couple of years have been very up and down in terms of training, that's why I think I need a more rigid program.

Thoughts??

My stats: male, will turn 41 at end of June, about 84kg BW at 5'7". Been competing for 13 years, but very up and down.

That Master's program looks pretty solid. Plus there are plenty of DLs and Pulls in there to help that weakness.

Sounds like getting back to those numbers is simply just going to need consistency.

Search Catalyst Master's Template, or example Master's program. It's on this site.
