I just thought I would remind T-Nation members, old and new about Rest-Pause training. I think too many people are focused on specific programs instead of applying the principals or ideas behind them to a custom program of their own. The results of applying Rest-Pause Training are excellent. I am dominantly fast-twitch and received great results from this within six-months and my friend who is the ?ultimate? ectomorph who is a cycling freak found himself deadlifting 315lbs, for singles, at a weight of 145lbs.
The first six months I started to deadlift, while cycling in Rest-Pause training (3 weeks on, 2 weeks off), my deadlift flew up from learning the form with 225lbs on the bar to maxing out at 405lbs at a weight of 180lbs six months later. And that was with, what I would consider, “newbie” form (shoulders over the bar, bar not rolled all the way to shins, etc.)
Mike Mahler is definitely one of my favorite coaches/trainers, who posts on T-Nation. Mike definitely has some excellent articles about life, training and nutrition, anyone who isn?t that familiar with him should check out his archives.

There is an increased risk of injury with Rest-Pause Training so you weigh the results with the risk.
