Hello people. Does someone have both the WSB and the EFS bench press manuals? I was wondering if there were any significant differences between them. I have the EFS manual so would there be a lot of different things to learn from the Westside manual.

If I were you I would buy Dave Tates bench press book, it will be easier to undersatand and help you with your training more.

There are indeed some simlarties, but there are some fundamental differences between the books as well.

I would encourage you to purchase both. Louie's books really aren't hard to understand at all IMO

The Westside bench press manual is available on www.atlargenutrition.com.

I personally like it the most of any of Louie's books. Well written with a LOT of information, routines etc.

The Bench Press Manual is _much_ better organized and straightforward compared to the Book of Methods. I read the Book of Methods as basically being for somebody who is already educated about powerlifting and has a strong base of knowledge. The Bench Press Manual has good depth while providing better context and overall coherence. I don't think that there is much you need that is not in the manual besides experience and experimentation. (Which no book can do for you anyway).

No, Louie does not sell his book in ebook form.

Mostly because he probably doesn't know how to do that lol.

i want a good book to lay out a few Powerlifting programs, cycles,templates and percents for all the major lifts what book do you recommend? I am mainly looking to use straight weight with some boards and bands involved for benching.
