I know this may sound stupid, but what are some great examples of how a strong and explosive movement should look like for bench press, squat, deadlift, and overhead press? Do all movements that are done in the program require a kind of pause in the movement to guarantee we do not use momentum to our advantage (like the bench press in a powerlifting meet)?
I already readjusted my bench press TM a template ago to make sure it is explosive and strong (I noticed that I would have the bar bounce off my chest actually) but I don’t know if it should go up stronger and faster than it currently is. We are so used to seeing people grind out certain reps or do true 3RM instead of 3 strong and fast pushes, so I thought maybe you guys can point to some videos off the top of your head.
Of course, there has to be a line since I could push 100 lbs really fast and strong but that doesn’t mean that should be my TM if I can bench 165 lbs with 5 strong and fast reps.
