If you’re planning to compete in multi-ply, possibly. Still probably not.
Otherwise, I can’t imagine a scenario where I’d think that was a good idea. I know there are a few who will disagree, so ultimately do what you believe in.

Might be more than just a few who disagree with you.
OP, you’ll come across plenty of people who claim conjugate style training is no good for raw lifters, no good for drug-free lifters etc. Ignore them. They’ve either never taken the time and commitment to try it themselves, or they failed miserably in identifying what works well for them, their weaknesses, etc.
Yes, it will require a lot more thought from you, a lot more reading, and it’s constantly a learning process. But Louie’s methods of training have provided great success for lifters across the spectrum. Plus maxing out on a variation twice a week is just plain awesome.
Give it a shot. Definitely read the westside method threads, they have lots of helpful information. Louie has a ton of free articles on his website that are worth checking out as well. Some are a little dated (his methods are always evolving based on what he learns in his gym) and he kind of sucks at organizing his thoughts clearly, but keep reading and keep at it, his training knowledge is really unmatched.
