When are strength gains *not* specific?
Chris Beardsley

Thank you for your great articles. The part #2 in this one looks the most curious to me. I do not want to overgeneralize, but does it mean (to some extent) that doing heavy negatives in competition lifts is one of the most effective exercises for increasing the 1RM strength in well-trained athletes in strength sports (e.g. powerlifting, benchpress, grip strength competitions)?

Like what you read? Give Ivan Sukin a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
