Watch: Westside vs the World 2019 123movies, Full Movie Online – Fights. Injuries. Death. Westside Barbell took powerlifting to the absolute limit and changed the world of strength forever. But are world records worth the price of the pain? How far would you go for a number?.
Plot: Westside Barbell is essentially what would happen if the Hell’s Angels traded in their Harley Davidsons for squat racks and chalk. It is a collection of some of the strongest and scariest people to ever walk the earth. The atmosphere inside the cinder block walls has been described as a prison yard weight pile. Fights and cussing are part of the charm, as are tattoos and facial hair. The environment is brutal and wears quick on lifters with thin skin. Every day at Westside its dog eat dog. It’s a proven recipe for world records (over 140 and counting), but is it worth the price of the pain? When the weights are big enough to kill, how far would you go for a number?

Inspiration & a warning
The day after watching this film my training partner was unavailable, so I equalled an old PB on the bench with no spotter. After watching what these guys put themselves through I couldn’t quit. There’s an interesting examination of the motivation these people have. They’re as nuts as any elite athletes, and inspirational for how determined they are. One possible oversight is the lack of mention of performance enhancing drugs, but that topic can’t be covered at the same time as a look at the inside of things.
This documentary gives the viewer a glimpse into powerlifting history, method, and mentality. The lead is Louis Simmons, founder and innovator.
Louis Simmons pioneered the techniques of powerlifting used today. It gives insight into the sport but also gives you a sense of the huge heart Louis Simmons has.
If you’re into strength sports this is for you. It will give you back the motivation you may have lost. It will make you re-dedicate yourself to the gym to be a better you.
