I RECENTLY COMPETED IN THE WEST COAST OPEN AND DID PRETTY WELL ALTHOUGH I MADE THE CARNAL SIN OF MISSING MY OPENER ON MY BENCH. ANY WAY I AM LOOKING FOR A NEW POWERLIFTING PROGRAM AND WAS WONDERING IF ANY ONE HAS ANY OR KNOWS WHERE TO GO TO CHECK SOME OUT.

THANKS.

the westside methoda are outlined at www.elitefts.com .... this a a very useful site..... great Q & A section and an article section. Having used westside methods for over 3 years now, I can attest to their results..............

Last fall I messed up my rotators, and had to pretty much stop lifting until a few months ago. I was useing a rather extreme one rep max progfram that I had tuned for myself over the course of a year, my question is, where should I be starting from now to avoid injury again. I know not to start heavy right off(even though ego strongly disagrees) but how long should the progression take to get back to balls out one rep maxes????

Your are asking for trouble training with 1 rep maxes... Your body can only handle that load for so long then it will give again... It doesn't matter how slow you go to get back to the one rep maxes.... if you start doing them regularly, you are setting yourself up for failure.....

Check out the elite link I posted, and research West Side Training Methods. You'll be glad you did.

Once I got away from this one rep max method or the old pyramid type training, and have converted to Westside principles, my injuries have all but disappeared.. they use a percentages method.. we train with about 50-60% of our contest max...... which translates into less injuries....
