    Any particular reason why you guys (Ceaze, Cavefish and Christophers) don't?
    Just not in your routine or you think it has no benefits?

    Yeah, only the downwards motion. For example, in pullups, you would stand on a bench and set yourself at the top of the lift and then slowly descend -- basically working the opposite motion you would use normally.

    I don't see how you say that. I can just hear the muscle fibers ripping on heavy negatives

    nah, who needs a CNS anyways?

    what does it do to your CNS that scares you away? Although I may body build, I do care about strength
