The key has always been matching up the right movements with the individual sticking points.
When I came to Westside there were only three 800-pound squatters.
If you spend all your time trying to reason why something will or will not work, then you may miss out on a great opportunity. It's taken us five years to figure out why we think chains and bands work.
We had to do some research into the force velocity curve and individual strength curves. Mel Siff and went back and re-read texts by Roman, Zatsiorsky, Bompa and others.
Not only were the chains working for the squats, but all of our benches were going through the roof as well!
We were always used to slow, steady gains, but were now seeing dramatic increases in a very short time. Then about three years ago, Louie asked me to go to a basketball conference with him to check out some bands.
He's a powerlifter and a specialist in developing maximal strength.
I thought we were going to be flirting with disaster and didn't want any part of it.Louie bought a bag full of bands and we were on our way.While driving back to the gym I asked him what he was planning to do with them.A few other guys joined the club in the following few years; their progress was slow but steady. I liked the idea of attaching chains to the bar, so me and Joe Amato decided to give it a try for our next meet.We cycled the chains on our dynamic day for eight weeks. We both put 60 pounds on our squats and became the next two to join the 800-pound club. The chains were introduced to the rest of the gym and within the next year we had another six guys in the 800s.
