I pull touch and go and gain plenty of strength.
Some things you could try it folding up some towels or using those foam yoga mats under the plates, so its a little easier to touch down without the plates turning and the bar going crazy
Or just set up in the power rack with the bar on the pins, and you standing on a box however how the bar is elevated. IE bar up 3 inches, your up 3 inches, so your pulling from the same height
im not saying you wont gain strength using touch and go…
But imo you will gain more strength from deadstop reps. no stretch reflex etc, also able to set each rep up exactly the same, so you have perfect technique each time.
This in theory should also cut down on the likily hood of injuries…
I assume as this was posted in the strength section, that the OP is training for strength and possibly for a competiion.
Hmm, I’m going by personal experience here, so take it for whatever you want, but I actually feel stronger doing touch n go, insury wise. I guess it’s because I can stay as tight as possible for the whole set.
I’ve done a lot of deadlift dead stop, and touch and go, neither stand out as the number one better way to get stronger. I go back and forth every few months anyway hahah
Sweet baby jesus, this has been discussed alot latley.
