I am planning on getting back into shape. I’ve been out of the Marine Corps for about a year now and put on a lot of weight. I wasnt a gym rat in the Corps but we ran 3 times a week and calisthenics. But I have a gym at work I can use. So I’ve been thinking about doing the Westside Powerlifting Method to get as strong as possible. I work at a prison!.
But my question is: Will doing the Westside be good enough to get strong and lose weight, or can I, should I, also have a conditioning program included. I know that powerlifters tend to gain bodyfat, but what kind of cardio and diet should I incorporate to lose bodyfat and gain strength. I could care less about looking like Ronnie Coleman. Id rather be small and strong than big and weak. Thanx for any advise.
