Seems like an odd choice. Its nothing like starting strength, goalwise or layoutwise. Definitely volume based routine.

^^^ It is an odd choice. I didn't look over it before posting. It is not a good routine. The muscle group combinations and the exercise selections are no good.

i was getting really tired from the squats...

Also, for the past two years i've been doing Starting strength the whole time on and off due to track and xc.. I decided to quit and want to get bigger and stronger. So after starting strength for the last 6 months, i gained 15 lbs(103 to 118) and hasn't budge since.

You will be hard pressed to gain strength from the workout you posted. Plus the "leg day" pain will be much worse than any pain you felt during SS.

I know SS is 'written in stone' but, if you're tired from/of all the squats then just drop a session (the lighter one, day 2 I think) or both even and replace it with something else. Nothing's stopping you from putting in some box squats or fronts squats. Ripp is old, he doesn't have the energy to come and hunt you down because you changed his beloved program and didn't drink enough milk

Why do you think your gains have stopped? Are you still getting stronger and better in the mirror? The scale doesn't always give you the full story. What's your diet like? How is your progression planned? etc etc

Ok then. The problem is obviously not the program. If you try a different program, you're going to have the same problem...and you'll probably go from program to program looking for "the one that works".

The problem is that you're not eating enough. If you don't eat enough, then you will not grow. Period. If you're stuck at a particular body weight, then that simply means that you need to eat more. Lifting weights will not magically make you gain weight. The most difficult part of gaining size is eating enough. Seriously.

Check out some of the stickies in the nutrition forum. Pay special attention to this thread. Look at what the number one reason is.

Going heavy three days a week will make anyone tired. I went through the same thing when I did a similar program. Unfortunately I quit the program I was on and started something that was less effective. Instead of going heavy three days each week, switch the squats on one day to lighter front squats or unilateral squats. That will keep you from getting burned out.

Also, if you're not eating enough, then you will get worn down. If I start to feel worn out/run down, the first thing I do is go to the kitchen and eat. A lot. And I deload when necessary.
