Likewise, people ask, how do you get invited to Westside Barbell?
The requirements are that you must be a pro or be at near pro level. For example, 1810 total at 181 lbs, 2200 total at 242 lbs, and 2400 at 308 lbs or close to these are entry levels at Westside. It's tough for anyone below this level to train there because everyone else is so far in front.

What is the conjugate method?
