Bar Speed vs Load

Hi CT.

Dropped the HDL as per your suggestion and I have noticed lift poundages going up, although after reading your post about 2 things for older lifters i am wondering,

Should i reduce the weights and focus on more acceleration for my lifts and progress through explosion and the weight will increase naturally or should I keep trying to force things.

Thanks and I hope my question makes sense.

No, it would be smarter to continue gaining strength and adding jumps at the beginning of your workouts. Jumps are the best and simplest way to maintain or gain explosiveness.

Ok As always many thanks.
