How do you properly plan phases in a workout plan?

Since LanceSTS and Adarq aren't here anymore really,

I've been wondering of the proper method to program in phases. I'm only 142lb at 5'7.5" and really want to hit 150lb at least. Besides that, how do people use the phases such as heavy CNS intensive with low reps and then more reps with lower weights? I know my basics with general workout routines, just never got around to understanding programming phases.

Transition from quality A to quality B

Possibly use stim throughout to properly assess current performance

I like that... thanks for the bump of that article too.

the longer ive been training the simpler my training gets


at this point its just this:
train with mixed rep ranges, always
have light days where you work up to 90% 1RM for one rep. this increased frequency really helps
slow bulk and cut cycles to increase relative strength
keep movement efficiency by playing a little basketball
