Lifting heavy weights requires power. The formula for power is P=mass divided by time. Training for speed must be ongoing, and productive, if results are to be seen.
Full amplitude utilization
1. Total utilization and Full Range of Motion
2. Plyometric’s helps you produce Power
Plyometric’s and jumping exercises that are done JUST BEFORE the competitive exercise can act as a stimulant.
For example, in your own training try this in your gym before doing it in a contest. After a thorough warm up for the bench press and just before you hit the heavy weights do two sets of drop push-ups from between two twelve to thirteen inch stands. Explode back up each time. Relax several seconds, then give the bench your full effort
For your squats Plyometric jumps would help stimulate the CNS, which will lead to a higher successful total on the bar. The same is true just before doing a max dead lift.
As always, form and technique are crucial elements of success and in hopefully avoiding an injury.
