Whats the deal with WestSide?!

So I was looking for a good strength program to implement with WODs, I was up in the air between the usual suspects...70s big, GSLP, and WestSide. I decided to go with WestSide cause it seemed to be the best one for me to add in MetCons with. I was just wondering if anyone was doing this same sort of programming and how it was working for you. Also if there was anyone who can tell me the rep scheme and sets and what not. Well please let me know what knowledge you have on WestSide and your thoughts on it compared to everything else.

You must indicate whether your links are Work and Family Safe. Even the Board's posts.
And look at my blog for ideas. Been doing it for a few months now with great results.

FYI: Nearly half the threads here in the Fitness Section are about Westside, so look at some of the threads. Also check out CrossFit strength, LiftStrongRunFast, and CrossFit Fairbanks.

Thanks Paulo I'll definitely check out your blog and those websites thanks.

And no Tim I have been perusing around google looking at different websites about it but I'll skim the search results for sure

Re: Whats the deal with WestSide?!

There are 3 or 4 Westside threads floating around. Chris Mason and Rick Scarpulla help teach the CF powerlifting certs, so look for their posts too.

Paulo, myself and several others have followed some form of it. So look at posts by us too.

Freddie,
The LSRF programming is very good. I trained there for 2.5 years. It is a good strength program that does not loose met conditioning. Scott has been going through some transitions and I would expect him to be better about updating the site in the future.

Re: Whats the deal with WestSide?!

I incorporated westside programming in september, and I have seen some good results. Although they are slower than expected the program is a lot of fun.
