Re: Speed deadlifts... when to breathe?

Thankyou for all the kind replies. Probably in this case, everything that has been said demonstrates that I don't really understand the proper reasons for trying 'speed deadlifts' so I should revert to paused or very controlled motions on my less-heavy DL day instead of trying to do something for re...

Re: Speed deadlifts... when to breathe?

Yes I usually do several 'optional' excerisses --- I'm quite time rich at the moment so I can kill as much time as I like doing excersise which is nice; but I often wonder how some guys manage to recover fast enough to lift 6-8x/week!

Re: Speed deadlifts... when to breathe?

So you are mixing the templates? Just doing speed-deadlifts and otherwise doing the "Control"-Template as written? And you really don`t know why you do them? (Other then liking Power Cleans?) What do you mean "you felt they would help"? Help to achieve what? Sorry for all these questions, but I wan...

Re: Speed deadlifts... when to breathe?

@ Mike Why do you use "speed-deadlifts" (in this context)? Are you using Bands or Chains for acommodating resistance? Good question... They are recommended by JC in his 'power' version of the linear programme. I like to do cleans so I felt maybe speed deadlifts would help. I don't have any chains/b...

Speed deadlifts... when to breathe?

So I have been following Candito Linear programme with speed deadlifts rather than paused deadlifts. I find it virtually impossible to bonk them out as fast as I can and still breathe while I am doing it. So I hold my breath for each set, 6x4, and get dizzy --- which I kind of like but it does feel ...

Re: Comments on my lifting regime + form

I`d rather advise to pick an existing program than trying to do your own programming. "Canditos Linear Program" an Upper/Lower-Split with three possible templates to use (one of them being Strength/Power where you can focus on explosive movements) or 5/3/1 would be better choices than what you wrot...

Well... I think you probably know best about your own body! Why won't you get it looked at?
