Coach, as I understand it the part of the eccentric movement of a rep that is detrimental and contributes to CNS burnout is the "turn around" point. I.e. - the point where the lowered weight is decelerated, stopped momentarily, and then reversed into the concentric portion.
My question is: Would it be "productive" to use bands, chains, etc. to minimize the load in the turn around portion of the rep thereby minimizing potential CNS burnout?
If so, then would it be useful to increase the load of the barbell while at the same time NOT increasing (or even decreasing) the load at the turn around point?
Merry Christmas to all!
