If you dont mind I would like to add a cautionary experience of my own from attempting to train like Westside with only 2 years experience.

Maxing on different lifts week after week really burnt me out. I wasn't doing the main barbell lifts (real squat, standard bench, deadlift from floor) nearly enough and with minimal rep work. My form was worse, I didn't have a grasp about the entire concept around speed work or circa max phases and all that advanced stuff. In addition, BtB is right about that style of training not adding mass. The whole point of them was to gain minimal body weight and get stronger as that weight class. But in your first several years where you're still building your base with reps and gaining muscle mass it really is not optimal to do so much heavy work.

Hope it helps and you dont mind BtB.
