I really like the book,it sets everything up nice for you. But make sure you have a set of boards 2-5, a box squat, and a power-rack(for lockouts)Glute ham bench, Reverse hyper. I didn't have a reverse hyper so i just did pull-throughs. I remember i maxed out 2 weeks before starting the program with a 345 squat and the first ME squat day was a close stance low box squat for a 5rm and i ended up doing my max of 345 for 5 reps on the last week of the low box. next week is my last week and its the max out week,
It has you set goals for the end
my goals were
Start: 245 end 275
Start: 345 end 405
start: 335 end 385
I know i am going to be able to get those easy, the only one i'm worried is the deadlift and thats just because i'm horrible at it. But other wise i think i might be looking at a 295 bench 435 squat just guessing.
I think the programs great espacially if you are new to the westside training methods. I think it was around 25 dollars but its devently worth it.
