"This book is intended for the serious coach and athlete. You'll learn while reading it that the Westside System is a combination of the former Soviet Union system, the Bulgarian system and the Westside Conjugate system. Brought together and refined, the result is the Westside System, which brings you a sophisticated method to reach the zenith of your sport. Soviet sports scientists and the information they collected from their programs and then provided in magazine articles and books made it possible for me to learn about their techniques and perfect my own. Scientists such as Zatsiorsky, Verkhoshansky, B. Tabachnik, P. Komi, Dr. Matveyev, Dr. Bondarchuk, Bosco, Berger, Vorobyev, Romanov, Schmolinsky, and many more – too many to list – played a role in my own strength education. A special thanks to Dr. Mel Siff, a great friend and supporter. I write this book in his memory and with deep affection for Mel and what he taught me over the years"
