Just wondering thoughts of performing speed sets after max effort sets. Example after heavy bench press 3 or 4 sets of speed bench. Tried de and me days in my routine but did nto get great results.
Makes more sense to do it before.

Performing explosive work or speed work before a heavy lift (85-100 %) makes more sense because you want to be able to perform the speed exercise as fast and explosively as possible. Performing it after a heavy lift would seriously take away from the force you would otherwise generate.
i rotate DE work into my ME days all the time with great success. I do the DE work after ME work.
Makes more sense to do it after ME. The ME work will get your neural system fired up (I think its called post-tetanic facilitation) so that you can handle more weight or more speed on the DE stuff.

I stand corrected.
DE can be done before ME or after… you’ll get a nice effect either way.
ME very much stimulates DE/ballistic movement, and in the same respect, DE/ballistic exercises definitely have a positive effect on ME lifts.
sprinting after ME is very effective… ;d
REA squat definitely stims the hell out of my regular squat…
Isn’t the performance of dynamic explosive movements after a ME movement the basis of contrast training?
