This was not intended to be a comprehensive scientific review of all possible literature.

There was a second study cited in the Instagram post.

There is also the literature in Supertraining by Yuri Verkhoshansky and Mel Siff that analyzed soviet research from the 1950's when the soviets were dominating Olympic weightlifting.

Article on the Russian Conjugate system:

Louie Simmons went on to find this literature and create his Conjugate model for Westside Barbell.

Dr Fred Hatfield aka Dr Squat, the first person to squat 1000lbs, also trained with, researched, and spoke of compensatory acceleration.

" Compensatory Acceleration Training (CAT), a training methodology made popular by Fred Hatfield. In his book, Supertraining, Mel Siff explains that "this method refers to the process of deliberately trying to accelerate the bar throughout the concentric phase of the movement, instead of allowing the load alone to determine how one should move." Therefore, not only will an increase in mass (more weight on the bar) cause an increase in muscle tension and resistance, but since force is the product of mass and acceleration (Newton's Second Law), an increase in acceleration will also increase muscle tension and resistance."

This is simply the information that I can quickly think of off the top of my head. I am quite sure there are other studies that support these findings to one degree or another but I am not going to waste any more time here.

So is it set in stone that research can conclusively tell you exactly what speed to lift at is best? No, but that is an unfair and unreasonable level of confidence that simply does not exist for any training methodology. There is no singular best method for everyone. There are just general principles that work for the majority of people.

Yes in my evil genius, I am twisting scientific literature to make things that we already anecdotally knew to be true, to have at least some degree of scientific credibility to them or I am attempting to present a concept that can offer actionable training methods for lifters to try and determine themselves whether or not it works. You are doing the Lord's work by pointing out these undisputed facts.

I would say building the evidence since at least the 1950's was more than gradual enough. But that's just one guys unscientific opinion.

I am being snarky here because you are trying to pick apart a generally accepted training principle that anyone who has used has seen is effective. I never laid claim to being a scientific researcher and merely pointed out that a new study supports what we already know.

I can't recommend Starting Strength highly enough. The book goes into detail about the what, how, why and when for each of the main lifts (squat, deadlift, bench press, press and power clean). It also covers programming and why the program works the way it does.

I definitely recommend the physical copy:

Additionally, there's Starting Strength Online Coaching if you want a virtual coach to program and form check for you. If you're lucky (and want to do the program) there are plenty of Starting Strength coaches around the country.

Buy Starting Strength By Mark Rippetoe

The ebook is like $10.
This is the best decision you can make, especially since you're lucky enough to be young.

After you exhaust it, get ''Practical Programming,'' also by Rippetoe.

I love these, they aren't flat though: Inov-8 Men's FastLift 370 BOA Cross-Training Shoe,Black,4.5 US

However, Men's MX20V6 Minimus Cross Trainer, Black/White/Thunder, 12 2E US

Are great shoes and hold up over quite some time!

So a serious answer: tape. I wouldnt suggest gloves. Tape helps a LOT or you could use wrist wraps.

Not sure why people are being so unhelpful

This set from Senso is inexpensive and has worked well for me:

It hurts like a bitch when you put it on but I just used New Skin last week. I had literally the same callus on the same spot rip open while dead lifting last week. I also invested in a pair of these:

Was able to get right back to lifting the next day, no issues since.
