Christian, do you have any thoughts on a heuristic approach or similar for how to find your weak links? Off topic, but related to why you think westside is popular.
I have found that many people, including myself, have been confused over the years when finding weak-links, and actually correcting them. I think it was very messy at one point because a lot of the advise that was given (and working) to individual GEARED powerlifters, was applied to raw lifters, body-builders and athletes in general. In recent years we have seen the popularity of raw powerlifting exploding, and subsequently, albeit slowly, the specifics in general advice has changed. One example could be that traditionally everyone banged on about if you fall forward and end up doing a good-morning of the back-squat you need to work your posterior chain and lower back. That might have been applicable to some geared lifters, but many of the new breed of raw lifters have instead focused on their quad-strength - making their hips rise in conjunction with extending the leg.
Anywho, interested in hearing if you have any good advise on how to problem-solve one-self.
