Lately, I’ve been getting more interested in strength than just the normal stuff I had been doing. I have been getting ART on my shoulders and back for the past 2 weeks now and am already seeing an improvment. I have recently cut down from 240 to 220 and will be looking to go back up to a leaner 240-250 in the next run. Here is my question/s.
I’d like to try westside, to be specific I’m looking at the template Dave Tate layed out at the end of his 8 keys series. I’m having a hard time grasping it just becuase it seems the dead is neglected, also shoulders and back seem negelcted. I will be using “help” for the 15 week strength cycle, and I’d like to reach a 1300lb total. I have not maxed in some time due to injuries, but I’d venture a guess that I’m prob at 1,000lb total now.
Can I add in more shoulder, back, and dead work in this program? What would be the best days to add it?
Also, will the program add the 20-25lbs that I’m looking for assuming I eat my face off
I’m pretty open to any suggestions.
Although I’ve been lifitng for sometime, I am new to thinking about lifting in terms of strength and strength gains. Thanks in advance fellas.
