also, in regards to what denis said-
you obviously know a shit load about training, this is evident by your articles and your advice. What i think will really help you, if you want a future in all of this will be to get stronger. its obvious you have muscle, but once you match that with strength you'll really be practicing what your preaching. When you can demonstrate your huge lifts, people will trust what you say (which is already correct) much more.

Just plug away man, keep on one program, and make fucking gains. Dont be afraid to throw on the plates. At this level of strength (where you and I are at) its extremely easy to add lbs to the bar, so do that.

good luck man (not trying to be a douche with this post, just pointing things out)
I agree with what you said, but one thing you have to remember is that my articles and advice are typically given to help steer people away from the path i took, so you dont wind up big and weak.

this is true.

you obviously somewhat of a naturally big guy (im assuming and from what i've heard). I dont think some skinny little shit would get the same results you did with your old shitty training

I say screw that guy. Do the routine that works for you right now. Change it up when the routine isn't working anymore. Your progression look real consistant. Keep up the good work.

I think that doing the normal westside is fine for you, but remember that even the elite guys at westside do some days of repeated effort. One thing I think is great from the WS4SB, is the jump training I think this helps a ton for your squat. On DE Lower Body days I always try to do some form of jumping, whether it be jump squats, box jumps or anything like that. I should probably include this in my log, but I always forget.

Do you work out alone? It can be really hard to max out if you train alone, and it is tough to push yourself to max 100% each week, a partner can help a lot.

Denis was merely trying to help. His goal was to help Grim get as big and strong as possible. Opinions might differ, but remember...it's not what you say, it's how you say it.

unless i missed something, they count the accessory lifts as their RE work at westide, but i could be wrong. And yes i do lift alone, and maxing isn't a worry for me, i just keep te jumps small enough that even if i fail, i have enough control over the bar to get out.

From my understanding the accessory work is not really RE work, it is accessory work. A lot of the guys at westside have started doing a second ME exercise after the main exercise for 3 sets of 3-5 reps, which is considered RE work. Not sure if you do this either, a lot of guys will max out bench and then after that do 3 heavy sets of 3 board press for 3-5 reps, something along these lines.
