I think a lot of the good points that have been brought up in this thread are effectively captured/included in the concept of compensatory acceleration training (CAT).
The concept was developed/popularized by Fred Hatfield and Sam Byrd, Jay Nera and Chad Wesley Smith use some form of CAT and it’s pretty hard to argue with their results. I don’t think I would be allowed to post a direct link to the youtube videos or sites where the above lifters discuss their versions of CAT, but they can easily be found with a quick google search.
Personally, I particularly like Sam Byrd’s method of progression.
If you are lifting anything you are out accelerating gravity. The more you out accelerate gravity, the less friction based is your effort, the more momentum you can count on.
Been around since a few attoseconds after the big bang.
Brophysics regarding the deadlift: “Bend over and pull like hell.”
Guy selling books regarding the deadlift: “Compensatory acceleration”.
The emskee princilpes:
Train to get the fast twitch muscles into the fray as soon as possible on each and every big 3 effort. If you always fire into a lift like a crazy man then you will always fire into a lift like a crazy man.
Squat, press, pull every rep in every training set like your family’s life depends on it.
Use godlike form. Perfect form is the greatest assistance exercise.
Only a small percentage of your lifts should be at or above 90% 1RM (make up a ratio like 1 to 10, 1 to 20, 1 to 100, who cares? it’ll all work to SOME degree or another, find a sweet spot).
Cycle from lower weights to higher weights over a few weeks. I like 5 weeks because I am OCD and think 5 is a magic number because I have 5 fingers on each hand.
Enjoy triples because 3 is also a magic number. And it is hard to break form in 3 reps but it starts to get easy at around 5.
Don’t know your 1RM right now? Guess, but guess low, you’ll catch up after a few cycles. Use one of those crazy calculators you can find on the internet (I’ve always liked the 1 RM = ((weight lifted x .03) x number of reps)+ weight lifted, why? cuz it is easy to calculate).
Do some bodybuilding movements because everyone wants to look pretty.
Pay attention to your self not to me.
