I dunno, I've never done negatives.

I've heard negatives dont actually build any muscle they just overtrain you and are a great way to injure
Accentuated Eccentric Training by Christian Thibaudeau
Can I take your posting of this article as you support working on negatives/eccentric training?
yeah, because there are many strength coaches that support it, Things such as weight releasers are a comon parctice!
negative plus negative = positive so you just have to take off weight, subtracting weight from the bar, then do your negative reps and that makes it a positive workout
I can't tell if youre being sarcastic or not.
All I know is that while my dead/squat numbers go up relatively easily when I eat properly, my bench numbers rarely change.
I am being serious, Weight releasers train the Eccentric phase, and are comonly used. My bench numbers have not changed in a while either, so i have no advice for you there.
Well obviously there is research that supports eccentric training as Thibaudeau pointed out. Actually it sounds like a negative day every couple of weeks could help me out a bunch, as of now I don't do any negative training.

I am trying to work on this
