    im sure ill get flamed, is anyone working mid/upper back into CP?

    maybe on me bench day, you can swap bb row for lat pulldown or something? (btw yes i added bb row. i think its an important movement for bench)

    im still at 5 movements for the day, so i figured it cant hurt.

    from what i gather, CP is designed to find weakspots, and id like to work this area. is it ok?

    also, on ME bench day.. how the hell are you supposed to do shoulder presses? im beat. where i normally use 50-55s, im down to 35s and hurting!!
    can i substitute bb press on occasion for db presses?

    yeah thats fine. Pretty much with accesory work you can do whatever you want as long as it doesnt effect your other primary movements in successive workouts. I do some type of pulldown as well as rows for lat work twice a week. You don't see it too much I think because all the guys that are posting logs weight ~300 and that doesnt make for a pretty pullup. Also rows are alot more supportive of benching and deadlifting which is the main goal of powerlifters.

    As far as overhead pressing goes you can do what youd like but just make sure its not degrading performance in your other areas. Overhead pressing occasionally would be fine but it doesnt really help bench out that much given its not a weakpoint of yours

    people should just say westside rather than conjugated periodization......you can do a conjugate routine that looks nothing like the westside template
