Feb 28, 2016 I watched a vid from Mark Bell where he talked about performing slow conventional deadlifts. He would use a tempo of 4 sec up - 2 sec hold - 4 sec to lower the bar. Mark claims this training method helped him hit an all time PR pull of 705. I wanted to ask and see if anyone has tried these super slow pulls? And have you had good results from performing them? I'm thinking of giving them a try as one of my assisting lifts.
