Great stuff mike, I can remember about 4 years back when you gave me a spanking on maximal and load.
On the injury side, I think it’s easier to injure yourself moving heavy loads at a slow pace as such is the case with the deadlift and squat. I’ve seen too many people take the full effect of isometric/eccentric unloading while dropping a squat or deadlift from a static position from doing this lifts too heavily. In the squat it’s hard to get out of the way, but in the deadlift, they could reduce the exaggerated isometric/eccentric load on the muscles by starting to lower weight before dropping it. In the OL’s if you aren’t going fast enough (the bar doesn’t have enough momentum) it’s almost impossible to complete the lift and the athlete ends up dropping the weight naturally. That’s just my opinion from observation although I do love the deadlift.
