Righto ive been training under the westside protocol for the last few weeks and am wondering when I should start to implement boards, bands, chains, shirts and in what order.
At the moment my press is 365lbs
My goal was to press 400lbs raw before using a shirt.
What about the bands, chains and boards? Any ides on when I should incorporate them into my training?[/quote]
Im sure people will question this method but i used chains and boards on the same day for 4 weeks straight, and my 3 board press went up 25 pounds…mind you i never really trained with either before so maybe my body just reacted very well to both, but i think using both for a few weeks is not a bad idea…from there go to just boards…i do chest on mondays, and than tris with boards/chains on fridays…i dont see a point of using the boards on chest day unless your in a shirt and you are trying to work it in…i compete raw and thats just my method but everyone does there own thing…good luck…
