    Oh ya lots of adducter abductor, shoulder health stuff, grip stuff. I would still do isolations like curls at the end of workouts just cause.

    And please be detailed about it. None of that "I SQUAT HEAVY AND DRINK MILK" crap.
    "DC training" but with a couple more reps per set and 30-40min per workout not 20-25min.
    I know its for mass and i do train for mass (bbing not powerlifting), but strength really lifted off.
    just my 0.2

    I have been doing some kind of westside since I started powerlifting.This past year after 2 years of not training I started with the 5/3/1 to get a base and I have been doing 100% westside since.With being back training only a year at the age of 40 I bencher 405 a few weeks ago,dead close to six and five and half squat.I am getting back on the platform hopefully in dec I should be close to my p.r. Total witch is 1615 at 255 in usapl

  12. Right on that's really solid. I hope to do my first meet soon.

    Yes YouTube,westside has their own site.Elitefts has a great site q an a,exercise index.Most of them guy were at one time training at westside so they are very helpful,Dave Tate ,Jim Wendler and others.

  17. Specialization. I pick a bodypart and specialize on it so it's my primary focus for 3 months. Everything else is secondary or tertiary. What makes it work is muscle memory in a way. You can do just a little bit to somewhat maintain all the othr parts while focusing training and growth energy into the focused part. Then once that is over go back to normal training and the muscle memory works in your favor. Any losses in othre parts comes right back to previous level.

    Agreed man.

    My best results came with Starting Strength. Though to be honest, I was pretty much just starting out so they were a lot of noob gains. Still one of the best programs to get started with IMO.
