I’ve seen the idea of bringing up your weaker squat/deadlift and moving towards your stronger version during a strength cycle.
This seems to have several advantages:
You introduce variation but the movements are still fundamentally similar so there should be strong carry over.
Switching exercises spares the nervous system.
Your training the weaker version which brings up your weak points.
When you make the switch to your stronger version it’ll feel stronger since you’re used to working at a more difficult position. This is probably helpful psychologically as well.
I was wondering if such an idea might be applied to other exercises, example, for the Military Press it might look like:
Dumbbell Sots Press
Seated Snatch Grip Behind the Neck Press
Behind the Neck Press
Dumbbell Military Press
PushPress with 120% max, slow military press eccentrics.
