This is a digital eBook-only version of Westside Barbell’s exclusive manual, Special Strength Development for All Sports, which we also sell separately in paperback here.
The late powerlifting legend and Westside founder Louie Simmons (1947-2022) put four years of meticulous research and 40 years of his own experience into this comprehensive, groundbreaking strength training handbook. Special Strength Development for All Sports leaves no stone unturned when it comes to proven, scientifically tested methods for maximizing one’s athletic potential—including techniques from the former Soviet training system, the Bulgarian system, and Simmons’ own Conjugate Method.
With detailed training tips, analysis, and illustrations, Special Strength Development for All Sports can help any dedicated coach, trainer, or athlete unlock new avenues toward reaching their goals.
Simmons served as a strength consultant for several NFL teams and was the inventor of the Reverse Hyperextension Machine. His highly exclusive gym, Westside Barbell in Columbus, OH, has more than 100 World Records to its name.
