I think it's very cool that you are ioncorporating speed lifts into your regimen. I learned about those from reading an article on the westside barbell website and when I was trying to up my maxes during powerlifting, I would incorporate speed training into my regimen. People would just stare at me and look confused but they didn't question me because of the numbers I put up when I would lift heavy. Glad to see you're doing them. I look forward to reading your journal, good work and keep the posts coming! Oh that website if you're interested, is: http://www.westside-barbell.com
Some good articles and training tips. They are pretty hardcore, as hardcore as you will ever find. All the top powerlifters come out of that gym in colombus, ohio.
Where do you get your protein?
But as long as people stay away from our cooler bags with our meals and not ask silly questions, we're all pretty tame
