Find a Trainer

Hello everyone, this is my first post. Thanks very much for accepting me.
My question is about powerlifting training methods in the 70s and 80s.
Looking at the "Featured Athletes of the Month" picture with Lee Moran, Dave Waddington, Ted Arcidi and DR Squat sends chills down my spine.
I am wondering how the men (especially the heavy/super heavies) trained year round.
The only information I can find is from old powerlifting USA with 12 or so week periodized plans for one lift.
Were these template percentage based programs used year round, one after the other?
How were they strung together, finish week 12, get a new 1RM and start at week 1 again?
Were all three lifts pushed at once?
Was the year organised at all...or did they just max out all the time
Can anyone provide insight (particularly Fred himself)
