True olympic lifters not only keep the reps low in order to keep form spot on. Why anyone would continue doing O lifts or Power lifts once form breaks is beyound reason...duh?

Wow great article, I know too many people who fall for this and experience a lot of shoulder problems.
This information should be on a public service announcement.

Possibly to see how long it takes for the bad form to cause an injury.

and not only this. But if they were to use high reps and IF they could hold the form etc. They would end up losing the speed and explosion and be in a hypertrophy phase.

Yup, you have to perform the lift explosively to become more explosive.... meaning it should take only 9/10's of a second to perform a classial lift.

The author of the article has forgotten more about weight training than 99.00 % of crossfitters will ever know.
Rip doesn't think he is an expert. He is an expert.
