    Gaining weight while training Westside

    Well I've been trying to put on weight while training Westside. It's going pretty well. I was just wondering about some stuff to see if anyone else had tried it. First was doing all exercises for a 3 rep max instead of a single. I read that this is what Halbert did whenever he was trying to gain weight. Any thoughts?

    The other thing was sled dragging. I read Dave Tate say that this has made some of his clients gain 40 pounds in 2 years without doing anything different.

    This is what I'm thinking about. I already know to up calories and protein. It's just training that I'm really trying to get figured out. Thanks all.

    I'm with pljay, if your not consuming enough calories your not going to put on weight.
    You must eat big to get big.
