    pause deadlifts... we usually do 3-5 reps, but I don't think those are hard values.

    yeah, upper back tightness will improve everything off the floor. we're pretty big proponents of pause work about an inch off the ground which will really strengthen that bottom position.

    Yes, it is. The point being that we have all this amazing media that we've converted into an editorial/article format that's easily distributable. :-D

    I wouldn't refer to it as speed work so much as concentrated volume at 74%-83% of a daily heavy (depending on the week).

    Yeah, we've had this in the hopper for some time now. The format will be an online certificate course with a proctored test. I will have to poke Mike to push the fire button soon. ;-)

    Just re-reading, but the more I go back through this, I think a more refined chart would be described in percentages vice, straight weight.

    I'll need to confirm with Mike (Hom) for sure, but my understanding is this:
