Are you a complete beginner in the powerlifts? If you are, no offense or anything, but everyone who suggests that you start out with Westside and to "read everything Dave Tate and Jim Wendler ever wrote" is dead wrong. Westside is a program designed for experienced powerlifters who have good grooves established in the actual powerlifts. If you don't, then you have no business doing Westside. You'll here people on here that think that Westside is the routine to end all routines. These people would probably have you doing chain-suspended goodmornings with bands for a max effort attempt before you even can do a squat with good form.
Get on a simplistic routine consisting of benches, squats, and deadlifts. Also try to get access to a hardcore gym where other, more experienced people can critique your form. I'd pick up a copy of the book "Starting Strength" since it has a very good beginner routine and the whole book is basically about coaching beginners in powerlifts.
However, if you're very experienced in the lifts and have been lifting heavy for a long time, why not, go ahead and jump on the Westside bandwagon.
