I lift, train combat sports, and am interested in any physical or outdoor culture.

@RobinAshe Thanks, looking into Mentzer's work was informative.

comment What is the “kernel” for a 4 decade training program for physical fitness?
On a 40-year time frame, I don't think we're going to be able to get any more specific than "stay active". Maybe "keep strength, mobility, and conditioning in mind"?

Well stated question.

I guess I was looking for a program or source that espouses this view, not a method for creating such a program.

Can you point me to any 2-a-week or 3-every-2-weeks programs? The only ones I've seen were oriented towards elite powerlifters or people playing other sports.

@mugetsu Right. (As Meade points out, the Starting Strength book is the best source of robust detail on how to follow a simple program like this.) Lifting 3x/week with rest days in between (e.g. Monday-Wednesday-Friday, or Monday-Wednesday-Saturday, or Tuesday-Thursday-Saturday) is often ideal for developing strength. Less can be more, particularly since you don't grow muscle by lifting things--you grow muscle by lifting things and then recovering with a ton of food and sleep and taking it easy for a day or two.

@JohnP While I share your low opinion of fitness magazines, this article is a rare exception. It's not perfect but it's solid advice.

This is a case where the OP was pretty clear about goals: strength, size. Info on what @mugetsu is doing now could conceivably help.

comment Neural Adaptation Training vs. Hypertrophy Training?
@Andreas I agree with JohnP that the last question you pose diverges radically from the rest of the question. That said, the central part of your question seems to be answered in some others: fitness.stackexchange.com/questions/5704/… fitness.stackexchange.com/questions/4666/… fitness.stackexchange.com/questions/2017/…

saying "additional" twice in the same sentence is like nails on a chalkboard

Your question is different, but this question covers a variety of helpful approaches tangential to your issue.
