I have been following the Westside Template for a few months now, and I have a question regarding when I should use a Bench Shirt.

I am 7 weeks out from a USAPL meet. I have a new single ply Katana S/S. I need to break the shirt in. I was told that 6 workouts was enough to get the shirt working to my chest.

I will be using the shirt on Sunday. Since I go heavy with the shirt, I figure that this is the equivalent of a ME day.

I will now switch my DE day to Wednesday.

I've heard that Westside does Shirt Work on ME day. Is this true? If so, how does this work? Does Shirt Work becore the Core Exercise, or is another Core Exercise performed prior to Shirt Work?

Let's start from there.

Thanks in advance
