    Go to Articles, then Testosterone Mag, then read the Eight Keys series and you'll have a decent idea.

    The Westside method is a periodization program known as conjugated periodization. Simply put, this means that several abilities are coupled together throughout the training. The Western method of periodization separates these variables while the Westside method puts it all together at the same time. The entire Westside method is centered around three basic pathways to strength development:

    1. Max Effort
    2. Repetition
    3. Dynamic Effort

    so it seemsl ike westside is entirely based around power lifting and not really muscular development? i was looknig at the some of the routines and it rarely incorporates movements like tricep extensions, dumbell presses and bicep curls...you nkow your typical gym stuff
    lots of benching and squatting and deadlifting. how does one get bicep training?
