please let me kno wha guys think im starting this in 2 days thanks
You'll have to play with the volume to get it right for you.
The key to the accessory and supplemental stuff is figuring out where your wekanesses are, and improving them.
Squats work better than supplements.
"You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei
"You're wrong, and I have a completely irrelevant pubmed abstract that may or may not say so." - Belial
I has a blog.
I has a facebook.
thanks paul... ill see how i feel on it and make adjustments
Wow lots of volume. I think it looks pretty good if you can handle it. I'm a pussy... I only do 3 or 4 supplemental exercises. I think the small things like the curls and calf raises shoulnd't be too draining if you have the time.. the routine looks about right. Do you planning on making boards or a box for squatting?

well im most likly gonna sign up at balleys because my dad wants 2 go 2 the gym also so i dont think im going 2 take a box with me... maybe if i see a low bench i can box/bench squat but most likly im just going 2 go as low as i can untill i cant go down anymore...pause and explode up .... kinda lik box squating..kinda...??Originally Posted by debussy
i might take boards wen i get ready 2 board press but for now because i havnt seriusly trained n a long time im just going 2 stick wit basic ME exercises.
volume is alot but i guess im use 2 doing both low volume(2 sets per muscle) and very high volume(20 sets per muscle) from b4 so its a happy medium. only thing im worried about is "failure" training. im use 2 failure and drop sets,forced reps,ect. and im hearing im NOT suppose 2 do that in this program. im use 2 going 2 failure and not hittin that muscle again for 7 days. this i hit it every 3-4 days so i will have 2 watch the failure thing and sets i guess.
thanks again 2 both of you for the help
The key to Westside, in my opinion, is the variety. Don't specify what lifts you're going to do. Just know that on your ME Bench day, for example, your accessory work is going to slam your triceps and you'll lightly work on the shoulders and maybe lats. And change the actual lifts up all the time.
