I just watched a video of a guy repping 405 and at the bottom of each rep he tapped (bounced?) the weight and went up again.
- I thought it was bad to control the weight on the way down.
- Isn’t this easier?
- Better to start each rep as its own lift?
No disrespect to the guy though. 405 was obviously very light for him. I’m just wondering if he piled on a 3-5 RM would he be able to lower the bar all the way down and keep everything continuous without sacrificing form. Personally, once I get up into loads I consider heavy, I do a controlled drop of the bar at the top and then reset before doing another rep.
