I have no question that the Westside protocol will produce results. Nor do I doubt that the Westside group is large. However, with that stated it still does not prove that there are not better protocols for gaining size.
I think its a great idea to change training programs, for many reasons. If your goal is to become stronger in the three powerlifts then by all means Westside is one of, if not the best! I think this has been conclusively proven by the number of success stories that have come directly out of the Westside Gym.
My original question was this: Is Westside “the” best way to gain hypertrophy? It just maybe that it is, but as yet it has not been proven to be.
Perhaps “the” best way may very well be rotating various quality training programs one such being Westside!
However, until there is more proof relative to Hypertrophy I will stick to my 6 to 12 reps, thankyou.
