Approximately how much can you lift in a certain lift with a 1 second pause? Really? What if you eliminate the pause? How much more can you lift percentagewise?
Let's say a powerlifter can bench press 500 lbs. raw with a pause, how much more can he lift with touch and go?
To all westside trainees in here who puts extra emphasis on teaching your body's "reflexive properties" via overspeed eccentrics, how much improvement did you make?
Let's just say that "Guy A" squats 500 with a 1 second pause, he has never done any overspeed eccentrics before which means his lower body's "reflexive properties" are extremely untrained. He can only add an extra 20 pounds on his squat by eliminating the pause...
"Guy B" on the other hand has been doing overspeed eccentrics for quite a while, uses lots of band tension when squatting, and has the same max as Guy A with the pause squat (500 pounds)...
How much difference will it make?
