    One of the pt's who actually seems to know what he's talking about was saying that dynamic effort or speed work isn't usually done with close grip benchpress. Is there any truth to this?

    And how long do you usually rest for DE days?

    I'm kinda new to all of it, but I personally haven't ever seen it. I rest 30 seconds on speed day

    Sometimes I vary my grip sometimes I don't

    I rest enough to keep speed up

    Yeah, he was saying to rest around that time too. I was resting a minute.

    How much weight do you use for dynamic close grips... if you do them?

    First time for me...so only used 135lbs.

    Get your GPP and work out all in the same workouts :o, but the injury percentage isnt really worth it

    But for 2-3 reps sets 30 secs isn't actually that short but I'll keep it to one minute then.... and only 50-60% of 1rm correct?

    NO!

    Jim wendler said they varied grip as traditionally was done at westside close comp and wide grip, for 3 sets of 3 reps, he said he thought it just made counting them easier. IMO it does not matter how you do them, I would think one would speed bench in the same way that they competitively bench.

    I haven't been doing speedwork with CGB's but I think I'm gonna start.

    Is that what you did to get lean and mean?

    Do you mean...by weakly...less than 10% change in the load or do you mean 'weekly'? ;)

    so practice speed fatigued? if you cant output maximum force theres no point and youre defeating the purpose of a DE workout

    It's not a good idea to question the most intelligent person on this forum.

    no, speed allows you to be explossive against maximal weights, For example the dealift, If you are fast off the floor, you are goign to have a better chance of locking the weight out, as you will have momentum going for you, the same can be said for squats and bench.
