    Q & A with Westside Barbells’ Louie Simmons

    Q & A with Westside Barbells’ Louie Simmons by Travis Bell.

    We were lucky enough to have Louie Simmons, owner of Westside Barbell and a living strength training legend answer some questions from our members!

    In this Q and A, Louie covers the “Old School” percent based training programs, how to train athletes compared to full meet powerlifters, preventing injury and improving the health of shoulders, strongman training and how to approach rehab for a herniated disk.

    Read on, you’re in for a treat!


    Thanks to Travis for pulling this together and also Louie for taking the time to answer the questions!

    Let us know what you think and whether you would like more of this type of thing in the future!

    I bought one my last trip up there. My training partner who is a personal trainer uses it extensively with his clients. It is a GREAT prehab/rehab device for the shoulders.
