Don't think I've ever seen real Westside training vids online before.. at least not for free...
Some great commentary by Louie...
although vid #2 starts a little odd.. I guess this is from a Canadian tv show??

Ditto. Those were from Powerlifter Video Magazine years and years ago. Great post!
What are those DB presses they're doing in video 2 around 40 seconds?
Rolling dumbell extension. They are a good movement that can be done on the floor, or on a flat or incline bench.
They're also meant to be done explosively

I've always gone to the gym with the conviction that I'll be the hardest working mother****er in the joint. Make that your credo, and hope we don't lift at the same place.

Thanks for the vids bearwolf!
Pitiful Bench-Jockey for life
That is the old location. The new location is SO MUCH nicer and a whole lot roomier. Needless to say though those vids are AWESOME!!!!
I remember driving down there back in like '97 and sitting in the parking lot where they were doing the sled pulls I was to scared to go in. I never made it through the door was WAY TO SCARED and OVERWHELMED by the whole thought of it.
I mean the windows were all blacked out and I seen one the largest humans ever walk out of it(Mike Ruggeria). I got scared bailed out and never went back til 2004. I can only imagine where I would be now if I only would of at least tried it.
Thank you so much for those. They are Awesome.
Was that a 4pps underhand grip bench in the first video?
Edit: Or a weird JM Press? In the third video, he talks about it. I've never seen it done like that before.
