How the fuck doesn't west side "seem like 100% powerlifting"? It was created just for that purpose. A good beginner's program is 5/3/1. Workout for a few cycles, see how you feel. Sign up for a competition (make sure it's RAW), and have fun. Also, it would be good to join a hardcore gym. You might have the privilege of meeting some powerlifters to take you under their wing.
