    control the movement, rapid movements will lead to injuries

    he's asking when doing lower weight deadlifts if he should do it slow and controlled or fast pace

    mmm, not the way i interpreted it.


    i interpreted it as, "at the top of the movement, should i let the weight drop fast or should i lower it controlled"

    and personally, i try to lower it with as much control as possible while still flexing/maintaining tension throughout the movement. i dont just go limp and drop it.

    I'm not 100% but I think deadlifts don't need a controlled eccentric movement

    you interpreted it as I intended.

    after you pull the weight up, should it be lowered to the floor in a controlled fashion or can it be lowered quickly.

    lowered quickly, but under enough control that you won't hurt yourself. You don't want to expend energy on the eccentric portion.

    because the deadlift is all about lifting deadweight from the floor. Once you're at the top you have completed the lift. It's not like squat or bench where there are two parts two it. Lowering the weight and then squatting/pressing it back up.

    Lower deceleration on the lowering phase means higher strength (or is it power?)
    Plus, the lowering portion is usually the most important one for hypertrophy.

    uh.. I would think lowering it with proper form would be an important part of the lift?
