What is Westside Barbell?

User Rating:  / 99

Westside Barbell is a private "Invitation Only" elite training facility in Columbus, Ohio that was created by world-renowned power lifter Louie Simmons. Louie is one of only 5 lifters to total Elite in 5 different powerlifting weight classes. He has been a top 10 lifter for 30 years and for the last 37 years Louie Simmons has totaled Elite in various power-lifting organizations. He is one of two lifters over 50 years of age to squat 920 pounds, bench 600 pounds and dead lift 722 pounds and total 2100 pounds, and was ranked 4th nationally in 2000 in the open.

Over the many years that Louie has been involved in powerlifting and special strength training, he has gained a vast amount of knowledge on how to produce strength. Through experience and constant, relentless research, his areas of expertise are vast and include but are not limited to the list below;

• The Percent Training Method

• The Dynamic Training Method

• The Maximum Effort Method

• Lifting Technique

• Raising Work Capacity

• Rehabilitation And Restoration

• The Reactive And Contrast Methods

• Special Strength Development

Louie's training methodology is backed up by his athlete's results. Currently his gym holds 5 of the top 10 powerlifting totals of all time, the greatest squat and bench co-efficiently of all time and the strongest male and female powerlifter of all time. He has trained 36 men who have benched over 700 pounds, 10 over 800, and 2 over 900 pounds. In addition Louie has 19 athletes who have squatted over 1000 pounds, 6 over 1100 and 2 over 1200.

He also has 21 athletes who deadlift over 800 pounds, 13 who have a total lifting record over 2500 pounds and 7 over 2600 pound total. Westside Barbell is the only gym in the world to have 2 over 2700 pound totals, plus 5 over 2800 pounds and 1 who has the biggest total of all time with 3005lbs. He has also had an athlete produce a box jump of 63.5 inches which is still the current Westside Barbell gym record. All of these athletes train within Westside Barbell.

Louie has published over 300 training articles, authored 3 books and produced 10 highly respected training videos. Louie Simmons is also the inventor of the Reverse Hyper® machine, Inverse Curl machine, Hip/Quad machine, Static/Dynamic developer and the Virtual Force Swing. He is and has been a strength consultant for the Cleveland Browns, Green Bay Packers, Seattle Seahawks, and numerous college football teams. Louie has worked closely with Kent Johnson, Johnny Parker and Buddy Morris and a host of other professional and top level strength coaches. Additionally, he has trained 2 Olympic gold medal sprinters, Butch Reynolds and Moe Robinson, both 400 meter sprinters. Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Heavy Weight World Champion Kevin Randleman and Matt "The Immortal" Brown have and still train under the watchful eye of Mr. Simmons. Top-flight rugby teams have and still ask for his advice and Louie has had past dealings with the New Zealand All-Blacks and currently his system of training is followed by the Melbourne Storm to name but one of a long list.

"Westside Barbell hands down is the Mecca of strength. That's right strength not just powerlifting. Louie Simmons has created the perfect atmosphere to build champions. The perfect atmosphere combined with the perfect training system has moved me to be the worlds best. I owe Westside Barbell and Louie Simmons a debt of gratitude because if it not for them I wouldn't be the athlete I am today. THE HYPE IS REAL!"

Laura Phelps Sweatt

laura I've spent the past 9 years competing in Powerlifting, and in those 9 years, I've set All-Time World Records 42 times in Competition, all using the Westside Conjugate System. Louie has had a tremendous impact on my Powerlifting Career and Life. His guidance and influence on my training has pushed me to understand what I need as an athlete. And his system has kept me healthy and constantly progressing, still breaking Records to this day. I'm forever grateful to Louie Simmons and Westside Barbell for this incredible experience.

Carlos Picture "After so many years training, competing, teaching, I always knew that I was missing something to make myself and my game complete, and one of those things was the right physical training. At Westside Barbell I not only became stronger, but faster and more resistant, the 3 major things a fighter should have lots of. They customized the training according to my needs and prepared me for the BJJ European Championship, and that for sure make a big difference to win the title of 2013. Their system is the best training for any grappler or fighter that i have ever seen!"
