Every strong man (or woman) follows conmon basic tenets. Not to make a list but we know anybody willing to progress should use the big lifts, lift heavy, not go to failure. Some follow them more than others and still get to be pretty strong.
When it comes down to lifting tempo there seems to be a controversy, some advocating slow motion, others explosive lifting, in favor or against grinding etc.
As a personal experience IÂ´ve tried slow motion training but not super slow. The kind of slow that comes from contracting every muscle as hard as possible during my lifts. IÂ´ve experienced great results (fast results if somebody cares) but of course Im curious about faster lifting style.
Some folks advocate the kind of training in whick you should try to explode the bar upwards even if it doesmÂ´t end up moving fast (due to heavy weight).
Which of these styles have worked better for you?
