"Tons of books on his own method. Obviously the west side, method and also there is A. Called period -Ation Bible part. One and two, which is written by Dave Tate and it just it's a summary of everything that the westside. BARBELL system is and how to do it, and all that stuff so I think we covered it I think we hammered it pretty good. We talked about the Max effort. Work the dynamic effort work, the repetition effort method you're going to you know, do A. Lower Body workout once a week, a heavy upper body once a week and you're also GONNA follow up those workouts with speedwork for both the upper body and a lower body, and then mixed in after your main movement of the day your main intent of the day you're. That's where you're gonNA. Throw in all the bodybuilding stuff. All the accessory assistance weak point training. Type of thing so. I thought it worked out pretty good.

"Programs, they'll do like ninety percent load for doubles and multiple sets of that on a certain day, but it seems like you know you have your dynamic days your Max after dates like you kind of touch it, you sprinkle it, and then you get out of there. Is that how it is that one of the reasons? Why like I guess it can be so good for longevity. I would agree I think so I think you know they're. The the the cool thing with powerlifting is you know it's just throw some weight on the far and you know it, you know if you do play in ninety percent plus you're just GonNa get stronger period, but How long can you do that? You know what your stress level you know. How old are you did a lot of other factors that can kind of come to you being able to do? Repeated Ninety percent lifts on a day and then be able to recover and have. Any sort of a day. You know whether it's twenty four forty eight hours later. and I would always challenge. People like okay cool. You just did six raps of percent, plus that's awesome. How do they look? They look good like if you're I. Ninety percent effort looks like dog shit. Why are you going to do five more well? Cut the program said like. Okay That's kind of cool thing with With the setup of conjugate for me is that it really explains the intent of each day. It's go until you don't have. Anything left to probably leave maybe one in the tank. But if you go up to. Eighty five percent and it looked awful. Man I'm out of here. That's good. Don't don't go anymore. Because the risk to reward ratio just starts to get way out of whack, and then this is how people get hurt they and then they repeatedly get hurt and go from there and then. With the dynamic effort day you know it's a clear like look. We're GONNA. Learn how to produce force with perfect form, and we're GONNA get a ton of volume, and it's going to be fast, and you guys should be adopted by the time you're out of here I think you know someone like mark myself something like Matt winning You know great Kinara of using the conjugate method for extremely long time. I think personally the will the guy who does the best. Is Cressey who you guys may or may not know, but he he is the premier baseball trainer in the world at this point, and he just had a question about the conjugate system for baseball players. And he kind of had the same answer that mark and I had look every program that I've written for the past twenty five years has been conjugated influence It's a great program because he can move things in and out, and you can focus on certain things and for sport. You need to be able to do all these things in powerlifting. You only need to be strong, so you can just do ninety percent. But in a sport, you need to be able to fact media closely if you need to be strong. Change. Direction absorbed produce force real all these things be Arabic and Enron condition. And do it all at the same time. If you're looking at a block, method or something else, you may be higher lower on one. As we kind of go along. As. You make your way towards a goal, but Wisconsin get all kind of happened at the same time, and that's why some of those Max effortless may not be as Jim in practice. Practice Graham that as it is. So, you know for sport I think it's a great way to you know. Sprinkle in anything and everything, and all the qualities of fitness I need to be good for your sport. But the question always gonNA. Get screwed up where it's like it's conjugate. Good Fort! Yes, is Westside barbell method good for sport, and the answer is no. For powerlifting. K. Jesse I don't think we will I I don't know, but like i. don't think we ever got your story about how you found yourself at Westside barbell. So. In. In, college as a baseball player somewhere around my thing, my staff more year, I found I found the Internet and I found a lot of stuff about working out and I wanted to be bigger and I wanted to be stronger so naturally. A bunch of bodybuilding and it just happened that the strength and conditioning coach at my school was a guy named Paul Children. And who was the all the time world record-holder squat in total in the three elite class at that moment in time. and. He told me he's like. Hey, man, you know you're you know for for baseball player you're doing. You shouldn't really be working out three days a week and you know you really shouldn't be doing all the. You Know Peck Deck and flies and everything and you know. I turned around and told them right to the another fuck. You was talking about in to leave me alone. And then about like. Two years later I realized he was, and you know the the knowledge that he had I came crawling back to him and. Asked him to. Forgive me and to help me out to help me. Kinda learn and to his credit. You know Paul's off the person Geico. I'll help you out. And for the first couple of weeks I mean he just fucking. They're crazy, just completely buried. He made me hurt so so bad, so it was kind of my penance for calling him out on it, but. You know teach me. You know the intricacies of the program and you know he was. The policyholders also been training. You know NFL. NFL Major League Baseball guys for thirty years at this point, maybe even longer one of the smarter people that I know I had a really really good mentor in kind of understanding the program. Was Extra special about Paul. Was He had a direct line to Louis Louise's favorite people of all time I really do think it's because of how intelligent Paul was so when I ended up moving out to California. You know my network of powerless. There's was actually pretty bad and I was able to go ahead and reach out the people and Whenever I would be able to go back home to visit my family in Pennsylvania. I would always end up spending. You know three or four days at west side and you know it was because of. Paul but introducing me to Louis Dave in in gym, but also more than anything. I just kind of have the audacity to you know I was one of those people, and of unless I, you know. Back in the day in the in. Would put his name his phone number and his address. At the bottom of all of his articles. So one day I was just like. I wonder if I, actually answer if this is Emmerson at the gym. Or what is this a call them and hello. this Louis. It's like. like I was throwing back because I didn't. I didn't expect it, and he was unbelievably gracious with his time and You know we developed a relationship over. You know five ten years. Whenever I was in town, he'd welcome the end you take me out and. And he was the main thing because and all because I told my original conditioning coach. They didn't let the fuck you talking about. When I go ahead. I'll house curious more One of the things that I don't know if it came from conjugate, but I know about I initially learn about all the benefits because of conjugate, a was the box squat, and all the different like but one thing I noticed. was that like Admin realized during the box squad? A lot of guys would switch their foot position house. Like why are you in the middle of a session? Switching where your feet are on this squad at your doing so?.

"You said You triceps and shoulders which? Which Success Work and then your squad they on that same week, instead of having that be also a speed day. That'll be your power day. Okay, and then your bench session at the end of the week. You can do that as either a power speed day whatever you want, but the next week the week one. You did Daedalus to speed the next week. Do Dead Lifts as power. Because what's going to happen, now is your first week. You did Daedalus a speed. That's not gonNA fatigue so much that when you're squad day comes in the same week. You'll be able to hit a training session and it's heavy, but now the next week you'll instead do. Do instead of speed. It'll be deadly power instead of squat power. Be Squat speed, which will I to recover for whatever Ben? Session you have at the end of the week and what this is going to do is it's going to help you able to recover better from session to session as if you're doing really tough power days dead, lift squat and bench on the same week. You're going to be so fatigued that week, and then you're like you're next week is going to be just speed, but you're never gonna get that much out of each of your power weeks now if you know you mix it up a little bit and have deadly speed week. Week, one of power week to deadly speed week, three dollars power week four, and then same thing for your squats squat power week one squat speed week to squat power week three squat speed week four, you'll be able to recover from session session a little bit better and you'll probably be would gain strength for a long period of time, but it seems like right now. You're messing herself up for one week recovering on a week messing yourself up against another week and not being that productive with all the time you're spending in the gym. That's something you could try out right. Yeah, and what? This leans towards this leaning more towards a westside. barbell program. And also keep in mind one way that Westside barbell gets away with lifting the way that they do is that they just don't do a ton of dead lifts from the floor and. When they say they don't do a ton of data, lift from the floor. I guess that the only thing that that that. His speedwork so most of their most of their dead lifting that they do that's. Like strenuous is just is is the speed work that's from the floor, but all the other stuff is like dead lifting out of Iraq or dead lifting. Doing like a reverse ban dead lift variations. Of Dead Lift all the way to the point where it might not even be a particular dead lift, it might just be an exercise that can assist with the dead lift every three weeks, or every four weeks or so Louis would just tell people just not a dead lift at all just to take off from a completely because a dead lift is a weird animal. You know you can build up a work capacity for it, and you can train. It frequently like any other lift, and you can get better at it, but you can also train your dead lift through just. Training just blasting your core and blasting your hamstrings quads, and and squatting and things of that nature that will all be supportive towards. Increase in, that dead lift. Yeah. Okay. Other terrorists I need to mix up. You know in the same week. Do some heavy and some speed stuff well those same muscle group, and then I need to finally bite the bullet and keep a good log of. sets and reps and weight, and the that Nerd with notebook in the gym. I think that would help me a little bit. You don't have to keep track of everything. But the more that you keep track of the probably the better, but you know just keep track of the main stuff. Keep track of the stuff that you really want to improve on. Otherwise you might be like writing stuff down just for writing stuff down sekine and on top of writing things down one of the main things with journaling, and this is like something that people don't do enough of you Wanna be able to reference that journal often. You want to be able to go back, so make sure when you are writing it down that stuff that you're gonNA understand. Maybe even like you know when something works well and feels good. Put a little smiley face next to it or put a little star next to it or something. Just so you know you're like. Yeah. That was great and a lot of times. When a workout is great, you can run again. You can run the same play. You can do it again, so you don't think that it always has to be like so switched up or you got to. Confuse the muscles and all this other stuff. Anyway man! Thanks, thank you. For calling in, we really appreciate you being a fan and being a listener. Thank you, thank you. Thank you for your time and I just got the Gangsta. Wrist wraps, and they help a lot so awesome. Awesome man! Thank you so much. All Right? My bad..

"How the flu vaccine works. So don't question it but yes far as I understand you get like a dead version of the virus so that way your body recognize it and can develop antibodies by like you know like By looking at that replica. So that way when it does come around again they're like. Hey we already messed you up once. We're GONNA do it again. Which is why when people do get it. They still could get the flu virus because it's a new version of the virus so sometimes people even feel sick sometimes after they get shot. That's yeah that's why I like a logical but it could also be physiologically. Could it could. It could be because you got a little dosage of of the actual thing itself purely anecdotal and it happened to me and it sucked. And this isn't this isn't why didn't take vaccines. I like the worst flu of my life was when I got my black when I got my first flu. Vaccine was the absolute worst. I was throwing up for days. Yeah that's that's happened to me every time that not throwing up that bad or anything but from what I understand and I'll totally joking about that degree is that you already had that virus in you. It's just when you got the objection. It is Kinda like woke it up or something like that so it was it. It just seems to be always coincidental every time you get the flu shot you get sick. It's because you already had. It could be that could very well be however since you have probably gotten sick from a flu rent. Yeah so that. That's that's the kicker he had some great information there. I like the stuff about the stem cells and them make making that fish. Meat sounds sounds amazing. We are going to have to like go. Try some of that out. That sounds so interesting. I wonder like Does it still smell like fish? Does it does? It still sounds to me like it's fake so that it doesn't I mean we didn't really ask about the freshness or anything but it sounds like it doesn't need to be. They probably just needs to be cold. Because it's probably alive probably like well. It's probably as alive as your meat is. It's in your fridge. But now weird interesting I would imagine they could probably make it smell like whatever like you know. They're they're making it so maybe they can like remove somebody nachos This is this'll be the cool thing If like if they make it for Mike real yet he said he's started. They're taking the whatever from real fish and they're growing it right but if they're able to like do that at large scale do has no health sheep's. Ashim could be if he was like genetically grown secure Also too I mean have yet. Grass Fed beef right and the people are thinking benefit of grass fed. Beef is the ratio right. Well if we're GONNA make fake stuff we can really you know amplify it and make it really nutritionally sound so you can make you can make steak have all the components that liver would have. You could make a hamburger have that you can make Bacon have that and I think that's why I think it's why people are diving into some of these things has always. There's always a price to pay always. Something's gotTa give you know when anything's too good to be true. Zoe always some sort of consequence to it. But it's it's just a really interesting field interesting thing to get into what I found. Really interesting he said and this is this was done at Westside Barbell by a lot of people talk about the needle like just like doing your own surgery which was which is really a a really an interesting thing but Louis used to always tell me. He's like Oh. Yeah he's like I just inject saline solution. Now's like saline solution is like that's just. That's basically like saltwater and I was like why do you inject saltwater? And he's like well he's like I'm not just GonNa stab myself with a needle not.

I like to walk so all that I was like damaged. Pretty cool Sunday. You know we we lived. We lived In that area for a while and while we were living there I was like kind of you know checking out some stuff with Westside barbell and and stuff like that was researching a lot of the training that they did and stuff and I called up Louise Simmons and talk to them about training a often. You know I started calling Mike probably almost once a week and he knew who you were like. Did he answer the phone? So they know who you before west side. He answered the phone and say West Side.

"Another another route that you can go rather than thinking of some of these external things, you can think about more internal things and think about the last time that you missed a bench press, and how when you're doing your tricep work that you're doing your homework. This is the work that's going to get me to that bigger bench press, and I want it. I I'm here I'm present, I'm working hard. And this is the exercise is going to get me there. And I'm going to give it everything. I got I'm not going to be done until my triceps blow out. And those are the kind of things that you wanna have going through your head. You know, the last time you missed it heavy dead lift, and let's say, you're grip. You lost your grip at the top. I remember being at Westside barbell, and Chuck Vogel pool is pacing back and forth. Like, a madman doing grip work going from one grip exercise to another. I was like man I said, Chuck I never seen anybody of train trainer grip like that. And he said I lost a meat because of it and that will never happen again. He just walked away and went back to doing his like he was doing high rep shrugs and then in between that he was doing this gripper machine at I was just like, whoa. Okay. Like, I get it. I make sense. Okay. And but that, but you can tell he didn't have to think about what he said, he wasn't like, oh, well, you know, the, the grip is, you know, this is how you train it. And like he didn't have to think about any of that. He he just knew that he lost a meat because he lost his grip on something one time, and he was just never going allow that to happen again. And the way that he was going to make sure that never happened again was by working hard. As I pointed out many times before I cannot sell you on that this stuff is going to be comfortable. It can kind of start out as being fairly comfortable, and it can kind of start out as being fairly easy. But as it gets to be harder, it will feel harder. And as it gets to be more complicated. It will be more complicated. And they'll just be more at stake all the time that'd be more stress. It'll be more weight will be more this more that and you'll you'll, you know, people don't think that you get sore anymore. It's like, well, it takes more to get sore. But by the time, you figure all that out by the time, you figure out how to even get yourself to be sore any more you may have made yourself really sore because things because you find ways of making things more challenging for yourself. And you find things to you know, ways of making things a little bit harder. And that is what I feel I've been able to transfer over from the gym into my day to day life, and it's not anything. Great. It's not like a great. It's not like, I'm I'm out with these great feats every day, but it's a little shit like even just getting here today to the gym. I went to walk back to my car, and I always park kinda far away. Anyway. So I get in like, you know, at least some walking. I parked like five minutes away. So I figure five minutes. Five minutes back. That's a ten minute walk. But then I also usually go along route even to get to the coffee shop, and I'm going to our wherever's. I'm going will today. I was like, you know, what let's just let's just develop a new habit that, you know, regardless of time constraints were we're gonna make time for this in what I'm gonna do is..

"I was crazy. I don't think I I guess I don't think I don't overanalyze it. I guess I mean, I was born and raised there. So I still live in the same area. Now, I've been I've been able to travel everywhere in in in my life. Which has been nice, and I've got to see a lot of places got to go to a lot of different places experience a lot of different cultures. And to be honest with you, I'm always excited to go back home. So I think it's where I live not. I think it's where I live though, being you know, an hour and fifteen minutes from downtown Chicago, and they twenty five minutes from Lake Michigan like where I'm at is a little different. There's things around that allow me to kind of do different things. Also, maybe you have good perspective. Sometimes you got you know, you can look at any area that you live in be frustrated with it, Indianapolis, that's the top golf now. So that's that's what it's about and living in I've seen the growth of where I live to just exponentially. And that's the same Indianapolis to actually Indianapolis and Columbus right now are to the fastest growing said his new us. Yeah. Columbus was when I lived in Columbus. It was crazy. Traffic. Yeah. There was traffic everywhere because the city wasn't really prepared to grow with the amount of people that were coming in to it was it was wild. Have you guys ever ventured out to Westside barbell? I've been to west Eibar Bill. I have not got invited twice. I've not been there. Yeah. It's a little it's a little. It's a little scary. You know There's a. a it's definitely a thing to go there. What was your experience, sir? I honestly I when I go down to Columbus. Matt winnings. Always been kind of the the guy that lets me and my crew come in and train and stuff, I visited west side, and it was more or less. Hey, I got to go check it out as a power lifting, you know, fan and everything else. But even now when you're in the air, you go to Matt's. Oh, yeah. Even this last time. I mean, I actually didn't even we go to the aren't we've gone to Arnold every year for the past eleven years. It was my first time. And this is the I didn't even walk into the expo this time. I try I trained at Louis Magnus a couple times always down. There went to a couple of other gyms did a bunch of different things at that point. I was I was more excited to do that than to to go walk around elbowed asshole with a hundred thousand people I just stayed in the cage time, I was an occasional sane amount of people hard to get around. Did you see Ben Pollard post the? On classic bingo board. No, dude. It was fucking. It was like nipple guy. Like Mark one frequency like nipple guy like fake tits. I'm like well all day. And that's the thing. Like it's changed for me that eleven years ago when we went to the Arnold. We're like, let's let's get as many free things as we can get you know, like it was it was a race to see who could have the the most shit stuff. Yeah. The most free stuff, and then as you evolve into this sport. And you know, you realize you don't need all the supplements. You just need to take trend and hasn't that's it. I mean, you you don't steak steak. You don't I mean? None of that stuff. You're not into that stuff. Actually to be honest with you I- kudos to the Arnold. It's actually volved quite a bit to where it's definitely focusing more on the sports strike sports or like in the obstacle of the Arnold huge. Their obstacle course. Sports like the, but I mean, adding like more state stages like, you know, rogue adding a couple of stages and stuff like that. Yeah. Like all that kind of stuff is they're starting to space out more of the vendors stuff to get rid of some of the, you know, most depressing day in my life was going to the Arnold classic. And being so hyped up over the years. I I went there every year before I was ever a vendor, and I'd walk into that first room and the WPRO finals would be going on and Steve GAN's squatted eleven hundred pounds play..

"So it it's, it's a, it's a bit of a mess like the Nintendo switch online thing. That's where it all comes from. But I mean they got Super Mario. They got the original. Mario, like the sometimes not work. 'cause it's like online or is no? No, it's it all works all the time pretty much, but yeah, totally sidetracked, but that's amazing. I need to get me some of that. I hope they do super tech mobile because that one was even better. Helen was pretty legit. Yeah, because you can customize your place to yet. It wasn't. It wasn't as yeah. Yeah. When the weather guy picture play on the first one, you get blitz, right? Yeah. So it was kind of like that. But this one, there's really like, there's nothing you can do like Kay, you're, they're going to run on one player. You're gonna pass and it's you. You're the odds of you picking out the guessing the other players plays pretty easy. I we're gonna answer us a few more questions before we jump on out of here. One guy here is asking about crate him. He's asking about like what brand and all that stuff. The branded creative and I use his Co. from a company called urban ice, and I'm working on putting out a product myself soon, but I'm working on testing it and doing some different things kind of find out the dosage of crate him, and I'm going to be doing a lot of testing on it beyond just just that. But want to check out the safety of it and all these different things. People have these different hypothesis about, you know what, what it does and what it doesn't do and all the stuff somebody says, put his punch out, punch guy out. I want to start something like the conjugate method for Westside barbell doing hype, hypertrophic work for years. Any tips for recovery. All this is sick. The guy just put up a Mike Tyson code zero zero, seven, three, seven, three, six, nine, six, three. Go straight to tie sick. Yeah, that kind of stuff. The best. You know, one thing that I'll mention in this is a. You know, Michael Hearn is talked about power bodybuilding, and. It's it's an interesting term. A lot of powerlifters have done bodybuilding in in the past. Like a lot of a lot of old school powerlifters used to utilize a lot of bodybuilding techniques they used to do set after set after after set for their legs on a quote, unquote squat day over the years, you've seen power that start to kind of change and shift, and they would. They would exercise the movement and not exercise the muscle, and this is exercise. That's a really important thing to understand that a certain amount of exercise needs to be done in order for you to get the fruits of your labor. You have to do a certain amount of exercise, so you can't just bench press to bring up your bench press. You have to look at the bench, press. In a more rational way, then you gotta understand that if I'm going to build up the bench, press. It's not really that affective of training session to bench press and then to try to work on all the muscles that are involved in bench pressing afterwards, you'd be better off with a well planned attack of, I'm going to bench press today and the rest of the day. You can only work about two different muscle groups in a given workout in my opinion effectively. So for any of you doing west side style stuff on your upper body day, which as pointed out by Louis Simmons, it's called an upper body day because he wants you to pick two or three. Possibly. You can have a smaller muscle group in there. He wants you to pick a muscle group and he wants to thrash it because Louis would implement your other, do the max effort method, or you do the dynamic effort method. So you're either lifting very, very heavy or you're lifting very, very fast. Once that work is done once that work is completed it all. Moves into what is called the repetition effort. The repetition method, which is simply bodybuilding. That's all it is. It's bodybuilding and whether you decide to put tempo in there and go bodybuilding bodybuilding like super set and all that stuff. You can do all that within the confines of the west side bar o. program. And that's it actually makes the Westside barbell program, so great..

"Day. Right? Like, but just doing that, embodying the identity of someone who's getting better who's making progress, just pick one thing and use that as this is true. I mean, Louis, this is something you've probably seen with a lot of people you've talked to, but habits are the foundation for mastery. So if you take a sport like basketball, you need to be able to dribble with both hands without thinking before you can worry about what strategy running on offense or what kind of you know, strategic play, you're gonna run or what your defensive scheme is all this other stuff, right? Like you need to automate the fundamentals of the craft before you can worry about the next level of performance. Same thing is true for chess, you know, like you need to know how the chess pieces move automatically without thinking about it before you can. Get into our, what am I going to do? And I'm gonna do this and they're going to do that. And so I think this is true, not just at the peak levels of performance that you integrate these habits and used habits as the foundation for the next level performance, but also true when you're getting started. Just build one small thing carve out a one percent change a one percent improvement and use that as a steppingstone to the next level. What about self control? Because what if we have this desire for something? What's the other word for self control and power, we'll willpower how much will-power we have. So. You hear this a lot. I mean, it's very common, especially in self-help motivations. Government need to be motivated. You have to have willpower grit and perseverance or huge important, and it's not that those qualities are not important. It's just that the way to develop them is different than what most people think. So most people think I need willpower, so I should just try harder. There's an interesting body of research I mentioned in the book things in chapter seven on self control and willpower, which is that the people who appear to have the greatest self control actually are just tempted the least. So they face temptation less frequently and therefore have the reserves and the resources to resist it when it occasionally comes up. And I think that this is actually like the lever to pull or the pressure point to push on is that the way to get better willpower is to design environment the you less not to say, let me just try harder, right? Yeah. Such yourself up to win, and you have a chapter that talks about the power of accountable. Partners, and I talk about accountability and coaches all the time. I hired coaches for everything because I sports is my life for my life, and I know that I couldn't have gotten to where I wanted to be as an athlete without great coaches and accountability. So how important is accountability towards habits as well? Yeah, it's huge. So I recently hired a powerlifting coach scrapes words like twelve world champions and having him has. He's not basing Columbus actually, but Columbus is great strength culture. It's, you know the Arnold, but then Westside barbell bunch of their sons. Yeah, it was awesome. But your point about coaches is a crucial one, which is that having a coach forces you to be aware of things that you would otherwise overlook, right? Like as you, this is what I call the downside of building good habits, which is you build habits. And in the beginning you develop fluency and skill and ability and things become easier. But after a little while once I have it has been established, the downside of having a habit is that you can do it good enough on autopilot, which means that you start to overlook your mistakes..

"We can't talk about the Russian that was that was taking got our president office got everything which was taken by Louis and morphed into a a program for geared powerlifters. And now you know, since powerlifting really kind of switch from geared powerlifting to rob powerlifting, you know, you really have to look at this stuff through kind of a filter. You know a lot of the stuff that made sense that one of the variations in a suit on a box or boards in shirt, they don't. They can't apply to rollicking so we can't take those. We can't train as heavy of a percent. You have to lighter, you need to do more sets more reps when you're doing raw. So some you and I really came the conclusion of, you know, when we get in our squat, sue. And if we did a squat that was nine hundred pounds close to parallel, we kind of knew like we can take that into competition. We most likely can replicate or something close to it, right? There's really no reason. I roll the dice and do another set because if we do another set could wipe us out contest, get a little too close. We handled eight fifty on the set before that's plenty heavy enough. And then we handled nine hundred for the main set and and we're out for assistance exercise, right. Yes. I mean, in in that level of intensity is so high in the intensity is Neo heightened even further because of the equipment. You know, if you can if you can swat six hundred pounds, raw say you put on a suit and you can squat. Nine hundred pounds that's central nervous system is is buzzing going crazy and you really can't push that cause the risk to reward ratio is really tips you know against you, it's. Not in your favor at that point. So you know the, the super high intensity stuff starts to disappear little bit. The higher volume higher frequency starts to start to come about, and I think you know, they're, they're there does need to be a little bit less of a pool of exercises that you pull from. Okay. So maybe like instead of having, you know, like at west side, maybe they, they used a, let's say, thirty or so for lower body for the squat. Right. Maybe now you're using like eight, right or something. The reason the reason why the box was so prevalent. Was it mimicked being in a suit so much? So this was a way to be in your suit without being in your suit. But if you're not going to wear a suit, you probably shouldn't box what all the time. Right. And I mean it a raw squat. Looked RAF re squat looks a lot different than a suited, you know, like a multiply suited squat. Right? So those are just very, very different move. Moments also multiple as the box to we can kinda release the hips, and we can sit on the box and do a standard kind of Westside barbell Louie Simmons. I'm gonna compete in gear squat or dynamic effort. Squat kinda get into the hips, the hamstrings gluts a little bit more or we can just do kind of like a touch and go squat, which is Dan efforting. Yeah, we're trying to find the proper depth were trying to lean forward into it on purpose or maybe we're trying to get into the quads. Just the other day we had a bodybuilder here who was spotted very, very upright. And when you watch somebody squat really, really uprights like, okay, if I'm trying to mimic that and I'm trying to get into my quads, what would that look like? If I tried to squat exactly like him. And for me, that would mean I'd have to squat onto a pretty high box. I'd have to drive the knees forward. I don't have the mobility at some point. I'm going to sandwich forward, right? I'm gonna squish forward and you've seen it a million times. Can't even handle it anymore. I don't wanna see this shit won't one more time kill myself. But as as your squatting down, you know, different people have different limitations, so you can use the box or something like that to where you can squat to a different death, maybe maybe have a lifter who's terrified to squat three plates. Well, hey, we're gonna, have you squat onto this box? It's going to be like five inches high, and you're gonna handle three plates, right? Makes them feel like freaking superman. Yep..

"I would like to five. And I was like, well, if I was like two thirty to twenty and a little bit leaner and stuff pie, make the difference I'm looking for and you know, and I would maybe be able to be a professional wrestler. So I gave it a go. I got really good shape. I went from I every time when it's natural. Every time I went above like to ten, I would get kinda fat. It was hard for me to maintain anything above that, but I would be sometime between two fifteen to twenty. But once I started creeping up over that to fifteen Mark sometimes to ten Mark depending. Yeah, just would start to, you know, not look as lean, not look as good, and so I just couldn't at the time. I didn't have enough knowledge. I don't think either to really figure it out. And I think with just more knowledge, I would have not figured out with. Thout ever messing with stuff, but the ever took anything I had apps before ever took anything. You know, I was fast. I was at letting it was, you know, a lot of things I could do when I was at Westside barbell before ever took anything. I did a five hundred pound floor press, which is, you know, benchpress reliant on the floor, your elbows, touch ground and you press the weight back up. So it wasn't like it wasn't like it wasn't able to do shit without it. I was strong and I was still heading direction. I think I pulled six thirty five and I did so in a meat. I think I've pulled six thirty three win one ninety. Eight actually competed at one idea at one point, but all that was before I ever before ever dabbled in me thing. And as a side, note the the dark side came about when I met the first time. The dark side came about, we call the dark side. I don't know why we. That's what we call it more powerful. Yeah. Cool. Yeah. Yeah. The dark side came about soon after I'll just leave it at that soon after meeting our boy big will and you know that that was that was something where it was like, I kinda wanted to do them and you know, he and I had conversations about it and then I kinda just messed around with it back then. And at that time I didn't like it at that time. It was like, you know, this isn't for me. I did it for a little while actually didn't really notice that great of of results off of it. I was like, I'm just going to stick to my trans, stick to my eating and not really gonna mess around this stuff anymore. And so I stopped. And then I ended up going back to it like maybe year two later once I got kind of deeper into pro wrestling is when I started mess with more. And then I think the pro wrestling thing was kind of like my way of saying that I wanna do, but I didn't wanna say that I wanted to do just for lifting purposes. So the wrestling was like a nice excuse, but really I just wanted to to powerlift ultimately, that's that's kind of what it came down to..

"They seem like they're opposites right, but if I have, if I take you to the gym and we're at the gym at five o'clock in the morning, I said, Steve, we're starting out with squats. You'd be like God. Damn. Can I catch any gimme a couple of minutes? I could get my warrant my knees warm and I gotta throw on my niece leaves, and I gotta do all these things to to get warm. Well, if we take the edge off before he even get there and we can minimize the pain just a little bit. You can just start squatting right away. Not like you can start squawking two plates. You'd still have to warm up like there's there's no mistake about that, but it's going to take the edge off a little bit, which in turn is going to allow you to work out. Harder, and it's going to give you a little bit of boost a little bit of momentum going into your workout. I've noticed from training for so long for so many years and utilizing the Westside barbell method. Learning about force production and really trying to put everything you can when you when you do a dynamic effort band, your squat workout, where you're trying to put so much force into the wait. Wait might be to twenty five or three fifteen, but you're trying to put as much force into that or even more force, you're actually trying to produce more force with those lower weights because you're celebrating them so fast that can be painful on your joints. And I've learned over a period of time that I could either do it or I couldn't. I go to the gym, I believe a man. My elbows are torched. There is absolutely no way I can get through the speed workout, which you would think speed workouts lighter, but because of how fast you're moving, man, it's a real pounding on your knees and your elbows and those smaller joints. Now, if we can figure out ways extracting that pain now, which is the whole compass of of my business of the slingshot, the elbow sleeves. Niece leaves the belt all the stuff..

"It's a very tough question than i've gotten into some long conversations with people asking them questions like you know really trying to help them and then most of the time you come to find when you do dig deeper they don't really wanna quit or they just wanting to talk you know some sort of alterior motive times and then when you do get that person that actually is listening cares you know it does make it worth it though yeah that's that's pretty awesome doing westside barbell stuff doing the box squats and speed bench and did some of those things translate over well for you in an ma the define your hands or faster and feet were faster and more powerful and more explosive absolutely and i've talked about a million times you know the all the stuff at west side we absolutely helped me physically get better stronger faster the morning they met as culture that lifestyle in that that feeling and crazy bastards yet crazy best for sure but men just the the intensity and and this is something you know i wanna bring to my coaching is that intensity and so there's like a whole side of sports psychology that isn't really brought into so basically what we end up having i think especially at emma may i can't speak as much on powerlifting or other sports but certainly may we have all these coaches do different programming we have a just coach strength coach boxing coach and they each have their own program design or no program design which is also all too uncommon then you have spoke.

"You trained at westside barbell like that's kinda unconventional for 'em may mean even there's some people in mma that don't really i mean i know more people are getting into weights but there's some guys that's that still don't really have a lot of value on strength training and things like that what what is what is that done for you going to westside barbell well certainly fixed a lot of weaknesses that i had and i was straight long before that too i mean i i've been part of straight trading so you already bought into it yeah yeah i mean i i was a personal trainer before i was even in the you have c and i was doing circuits before they were cool be round two thousand one or two or whatever but yeah i believe straight so like the technique i've always believed is one thing that is a time thing they you technique is only going to come with time you no matter how much you know you practice it's only going to be a time thing right you can only do so many reps in a day right i can with jabs so many times i can my my body my mind's only gonna absorb so much with the strength training of course as time thing too but is something that i can control very objectively and i can see the improvement and i can i can translate that directly into performance and of course injury prevention and things like that do you think some fighters lose sight of the fact that it's an actual fight i you know sometimes things get a little too technical.
