What's a good routine to increase power, but not necessarily a power lifting routine?

I want to get more powerful but not only in the big 3 lifts, I love shoulder pressing and weighted chins for example.

I've done 5x5 before and got good results, but powerlifters use lower rep ranges and increase the weight between sets, so should I be doing that?  Powerlifters also seem to do 3 days on.  I like being in the gym, i have to restrain myself from going every day, a program with 4 or 5 days would be great for me.
 
I need someone to give me a strict program to follow as I don't know enough to create my own.

    I'm not a powerlifter but I have found tremendous help and advice on here by reading and chatting to some of the lads in the Training Jounals section.
    True, some follow strict strongman-type routines but all their programmes are different and I'm sure you can adapt your routine by adding some of their routines to your own.

    I know its confusing right, some people swear by 5x5 for strength or 3 x 6, but then you actually look at a powerlifting routine and it's totally different.  They do about 10 sets and continuously add weight between sets, generally finishing with 1 rep at somewhere near 90%+ their 1rpm.   Which is almost like a pyramid, and some people will tell you pyramids are stupid because you fatigue yourself before you get to the serious weights.  

    If you figure it all out let me know.
