Good article

Looks like #1-4 are a repudiation of the Westside approach for powerlifters or parts of it..at least for Wendler?

Westside does
- frequent heavy good mornings
- dynamic bench presses with bands with great speed on the eccentric w/Louie yelling "Dive, dive, dive!" as the bar goes down
- recommends triceps extensions
- and switches main exercises all the time to establish maxes in separate exercises.

Don't know about #5 & #6 for Westside powerlifters, not aware of their conditioning/sprinting/flexibility/jumps/speed work.

Louie writes about 5 & 6 for track & field & football athletes, etc. but I'm not aware of what their powerlifters are doing with 5 & 6 (but I don't think a huge amount.)
