    I was just wondering about using a westside template – just so I can get good numbers in testing.

    Would it be possible to use it for a few weeks just to ramp up my lifting numbers, and then revert back to my standard 5 x 5 program?

    what would a westside template look like for a rugby player, and when would be the best time to use it? I’m assuming when your not playing, as big improvements can’t really be made during the playing season.

    Thanks.

    Hi powersports, off seaosn training you can used the westside model fairly much the entire time, probably the best templates to use would be either deFrancos series on Westside for Skinny Bastards, published on ekitefts and t-nation or go straight to the source and download Dave Tates and Jim Wendlers ebooks, they are absolute necessities, also from memory there is an article on the adaptation of westside for wrestlers which was very good, also do not doubt that gains can not be made throughout the season, I had 2 props set life time personal bests on the box squat a few years back the week of the Super 14 final, you can always make gains but not necessarity at the same rate as off season, cheers, ash

    Also best time as you have suggested is in off seaosn but you can use elements of both the maximal effort and dynamic days in season as well, cheers, ashley

    Also for a fairly complete picture of the westside methods if you do not want to purchase the ebooks by Tate and Wendler I would go to http://www.deepsquatter.com and read through the archives under Lou Simmons and Dave Tate, there are also some very good articles from a number of gifted writers there as well, also well worth a look is the web site http://www.lifttillyadie.com with a great links section which would have to be the most comprehensive on the web, enjoy your weekend, ash

    Awesome Ash, thanks alot mate.

    I will have a look at these.

    I heard that the guy who trains the Broncos has been using similiar principles for years – if Brad Thorn is any indication of the results you can get, I think it will be worth a shot.

    Yes indeed powersports, Dr. Dan Baker is the best most knowledgeable theoretical and practical strength coach in Australia if not the world in strength power sports, and Dean Benton is one of the best fitness/speed coaches so when you have 2 of the best planning your physical training then it is a fair starting point, cheers, ash
