Mo's Strength Routine
Karelin, the ultimate strength athlete

My routine is not sport specific but I will adjust my program to achieve a specific goal event.  Most of the time I do some variation of this routine.  Balanced strength and progression are the primary focus.  Volume and intensity are based on my recovery.  Typically I will do each workout twice in ten days.   I do 15-40 sets total and the workout takes less than an hour.

Leg Curls
Toe Raises

Variations include Front Squats, Split Squats, One Legged Squats,  Leg Extensions and Stiff Legged Deadlifts.

Chest, Triceps & Shoulders
Bench Press
Incline Press
Lying Triceps Extension
Shoulder Press
Front/Side Raises
Bent Over Raises

Variations include Flys, Peck Deck, Pullovers, French Press and rotator cuff exercises.

Back & Biceps
Chin ups
Low Cable Row
Hyper Extensions
BB curls
DB curls
Hammer Curls

Variations include Pull downs, DB/BB rows andCable curls.

*Abs (abdominal) training is done prior to every routine as part of my warm-up.  I superset crunches, Russian Twists, Hanging Leg Lifts and Tucks.  Occasionally I'll include Side Bends and Knee Pulls.  I use dumbells or plate  to reduce the number of reps to 12-20 per set.
