    Only 1 set day e/w for PLing dosen't give us a whole lot to work with. Especially if your planing on doing meets.

    5 days a week might be a bit much. Have researched using some powerlifting programs? If you're using Westside you could switch out DE for RE and gain quite a bit of mass. Other programs like Wendler's 5/3/1 and MadCows 5x5 are all very solid.

    Good luck,

    Well that makes a little more sence. I would look into Wendler's 5/3/1 as suggested above. Westside will not work parallel to a BBing routine.

    Have you decided what you want to do for each day? lifts, sets, reps, weights, etc...

    The powerlifts work a lot of muscle so you would want to take into account that you're working every multiple times a week.

    Your fine, I'm just trying to get my arms around this. Maybe you could give us a complete layout of your weekly routine & we can build from there. Right now things seems to be a little all over the place.

    So on Saturday you want to do 8 to 10 sets of 3 to 5 reps for each of the powerlifts, in addition to doing them once during the week?

    I'm not sure what you plan on getting out of the Saturday session that you can't get out of your weekday sessions. You can make excellent progress training the lifts once a week.

    Well the only reason i was powerlifting on saturdays is because wherever i read it says powerlifters train everything twice a week for strength, but if once a week will work than i'll do once a week

    maybe it would help if you told us why you think one is bodybuilding and the other is powerlifting?

    The lifts are the same and the rep schemes aren't too far off of what you would see a PLer doing.

    If you wanted to add some heavy singles, doubles or triples into the workouts you are already doing that may help. Adding a day of "powerlifting" isn't really the best way to get stronger for most people.

    You've been given examples of some excellent programs and they can all be used to gain mass (I assume that's what you mean by bodybuilding). Is there a reason why you don't want to use one of those programs?

    those programs are more for strength training, and bodybuilding and powerlifting are a lot different. Bodybuilding is for physique higher reps than a power lifter and they go for looks, power lifting is more pure strength 3-5 reps, if i should do the extra day thats fine i wont i was just wondering if it would help me

    It's a really tuff task trying to bodybuild & Power Lift at the same time, that's all. Especially if your looking to be competitive at one or the other. I would really look into Wendler's 5/3/1 if your looking to do a hybid style of training. The Westside Barbell is completely not in the cards though.
