I don't know if this will help you, but I feel like typing up a story, so here goes:
There is a new guy at my gym. I had a conversation with him a few days ago where he told me all his numbers (I never asked to hear them) and then asked me my training schedule. I told him the days I train. He said he's looking for someone to train powerlifting, I decided to stick around and listen to him further. He asked me if I do speed days, max effort days, etc. I told him no. He was shocked. He told me "Man, you gotta do speed work, thats how you get strong." I said "ok." He asked me my days again, I told him I have 2 "leg" days and 2 push/pull. He asked me if I do speed work again, I said no.
I said to him: "It sounds to me like you follow westside" He replied with "yes but actually Laura Phelps writes my programs" (he is a recent transplant from Cincinnati). Then he talked about Laura Phelps, and despite the fact that I told him "Yes I know of that man" he continued to talk about her and how explosive she is. He then said "well if you want to train we should work something out, there's not many people into powerlifting here and so it'd be conducive to our training." I told him "Well, yeah man, let me know your schedule as far as when you are here and we can figure something out, but I don't train westside and do not plan on doing it ever because I don't agree with 70% of what Louie says."
I then saw him warm up with a bar hitting his squats 3" above parallel.
Moral of the story? Don't be like that guy.
