    Can you touch a bit (haha pun) on controlled touch and go vs deadstop / restsetting each rep on deadlifts or block/rack deadlifts?

    My brain tells me that staying locked in position through the entire set maybe a bit more beneficial from a development perspective, where a dead stop would train more explosiveness.

    Great question. Ive always debated this one myself. I typically like doing dead stops because I like forcing my body to remember every little detail as far as torque and priming goes. I think ultimately we want to increase are ability to pull off the ground not necessarily off the rebound so for me I just view deadstops as better practice from a practice basis.

    Awesome, thanks Joe!! It definitely can be hard to keep the TNGs pretty little taps when we’re also dumb dumb meatheads lol
