Are max effort exercises for developing strength, or are they for finding out weaknesses?
In the periodization bible part 2 Dave Tate says that max effort exerises are for developing strength, but some lifters tell me that MEs are really for finding one's weaknesses instead of for developing strength.
If accessory and supplemental lifts are supposed to help bring up the max effort lifts, why are they trained using the repetition method?- which is for hypertrophy according to one of Dave Tate's articles.
The article says one thing, but sometimes people say another thing, no wonder Westside is confusing to some of us.
Can someone help clarify things for me?
