Completely New to Westside (routine HELP!)

I have never trained this way, but from what I have read, it is a good way to train. I have been training in a variation of Frankies 5x5 for 2-3 months, and want to change for no other reason, then I am just plateuing and getting bored.

I need someone to design a routine for me, with all the details. Sets, Reps, how to warmup, everthing. Any help is much much appreciated. Thanks

    The beauty of Westside training relies on its incredible flexibility: one can tailor a routine that will fit his goals. Unfortunately, we cannot help you because:
    A) We don't know your goals
    B) We don't know your weaknesses on the main lifts

    When I wanted to start Westside, I started to read some of the Tate/Simmons articles at deepsquatter.com, it gave me a rough idea of how the system works and then I checked some of my lifts (sticking point/execution) to know my weaknesses. Without doing so, it,ll be very hard to design a good routine.

    Well, I talked to Sruffy and he showed me one. It's in my journal. My weaknesses Id say is the bottom position on all lifts. I see the flexability. I am gonna do 3x3 on the Max Effort days on the core lifts...this looks like its going to be a really really fun routine. My goals...well...at the hopes of maybe entering a local Powerlifting Tournament, I need to get all my lifts up. Bench up maybe 50-75 lbs, and squat and dead up 85-100 lbs each.

    but as a beginner he neads to refine his lifting tecnique and get it all spot on and get some weight moving before he even considers any bands,chains and suits.
