Yeah you can run WS without bands. Just use the ME movements that dont require bands.

Thanks J Byrd! That's excellent to hear.
I was looking at a few Westside templates and this site seems to provide the best outline of the frameworks -http://www.elitefitness.com/forum/weight-training-weight-lifting/westside-barbell-basic-template-469668.html

I'll be recruiting you (and others) on the forum to help me determine my weak/sticking points so that I can design a routine with meaningful accessory work.

Needless to say, I'm psyched for my maxes on Friday so that I can start crushing Westside!!

Like JB said, Westside should work fine without bands. Just getting the feel for the template and your needs will take some time anyway. I would just get in the groove with your ME and DE work, and start a thread asking for suggestions. Fazc and Ltl are Westside Jedis. They can get you focused on using the right assistance and DE work.

We use programs that are generally considered old school or dated by some. Not a lot of rocket surgery in our approaches. We tend to KISS - at least compared to the Westside guys.

I hope that doesn't get read into, because it's not meant to say one is better than the other. At the end of the day it's all about finding out what works for you.

Start to closely watch what you are doing when you are making progress. This will help in the long run when you stall. You can look back and see if any old tools need to be brought back.

Fueled by pizza.

Squats - form looks rock solid from what I can tell. Well done.

Bench - again good, but I would advise some pause work. Your heavy reps are getting close to that bouncing stage. Fast eccentrics can be good, but I would like to see you work on some slightly slower eccentrics with a focus on staying as tight as possible, with a pause at the bottom.

I would rather see powerful, smooth and tight eccentrics. Having to change direction that fast on a press...

Some will disagree with me, but I think if you drop too quickly you have to be extremely disciplined to stay tight.

Deadlifts - very strong, but you raise your hips before the bar left the ground. You started the pull with your shoulders behind the bar are your hips came up to find a better leverage point.
