I'm planning of trying out westside over the summer and fall. I think I will be using the routine here: http://www.wannabebig.com/article.php?articleid=46
So far I've read a lot about it on elitefts.com in the article sections, and it looks like it would be great for developing the speed and explosiveness I need for wrestling. Though I still have a few questions.
I have been told that I need to change my ME lifts a maximum of every three weeks. However for the ME squat/deadlift day all this routine and many others list are good mornings. Am I supposed to simply do different types of Good mornings then every three weeks, such as close and wide stances or good morning squats? Also I am under the impression that reverse hypers are VERY important, as every westside program I've seen mentions them with good mornings as great for developing the "posterour chain." However my home gym and our gym at school does not have this machine. What is a good alternative?
Also what are some other good ME bench workouts that I can switch to after a few weeks? And because I am training for wrestling I was considering doing a more bicep/lat work then the program suggests, such as bent rows with pull-ups and DB curls or chin-ups, DB rows and straightbar curls. Would this add to much volume to my workout?
I lifted weights a lot last summer but I did not see NEARLY the results I wanted, so this summer I'm being very consciouse on the routine I'm doing and my diet (I also don't have a lot of time to get strong either). Ever since january I have been lifting again, and in February I got my diet in check and I started gaining some weight. Now I'm just focusing on strength, and by October 1 I would like to Bench 200, squat 320, clean 200, and deadlift 300 (not sure what My max is on deadlift, but last week I did 225 for 5 reps ) without getting over 170 pounds. Also, where do I work in cleans for my work out? Should I just do them as one of the assisted excercises for speed squat day?
Thanks for any help you guys can give me. My coach has never really heard of this style of powerlifting, so I've been kind of *one my own.* Most of what I've seen on the internet isn't very specific on Westside routines either, (short of wannabebig) just the theory behind Westside.
