I'm new to powerlifting. What's a good program to start with? I'm sort of interested with learning to do clean and jerks and clean and presses, but I don't know how to incorporate them into a good program containing DL, Squats and BP. What rep range should I keep at? How long should I rest between sets? Between gym days?
My gym's weights aren't rubberized, either, so I can't drop the barbell after a clean and jerk/press. Are there any alternatives to dropping the barbell?
A sample routine which I could modify as I go along would be greatly appreciated.
