    olympic lifts are power exercises as well.
    I was in reference to barbell benching and regular back squats.

    The exercises you listed are variations, but they do indeed target specific power fibers.

    Explosiveness = power.

    Strength is the ability to generate force within a single contraction.

    Power is work per unit of time. (Speed strength).

    I would like to see some bodybuilders or anyone in general that has a good amount of hypertrophy using 3-5 reps as his typical rep range. Drug talks aside of course.


    Drugs have nothing to do with what rep range would work for someone. Anabolics increase your bodies ability to produce artificially enhanced testosterone, more efficient than regular testosterone at building muscle, and you have unlimited amounts - meaning you cannot overtrain your endocrine system. Drugs won't change what occurs with high or low reps.

    I mean i'd love to train with 3-5 reps, its just its never worked for me in the past even with my nutrition/supps being on point, and it always resulted in some kind of tendonitis of some sort, and have yet seen any great physiques built on 3-5 reps as their typical rep range. Though correct me if im wrong, Christian T over at Tnation typically uses low reps for his hypertrophy training? Even though myofibrillar hypertrophy has been shown to be best around 3-5 reps, reality has shown for most people it just gives them injuries and more so strength gains via strengthening CNS/connective tissue. My point is just I want to get inspired via seeing others develop muscular physique using low reps for hypertrophy, just really haven't seen it yet...

    Bill Starr
    Louie Simmons
    Dave Tate
    Joe DeFranco
    Fred Hatfield
    Christian Thibaudeua
    John Cena

    Those are all examples of athletes / coaches that have had hundreds of clients gain LBM and specific hypertrophy with low reps.

    As long as contraction and recovery both occur, hypertrophy can result.

    Low reps do not cause injuries. Injuries are mainly caused by form issues. If someone is lifting with their ego and not their intelligence, then they will get injured and it doesn't matter if it's high or low reps.

    Look at lightweight powerlifters as an example of hypertrophy development in response to low reps.

    explosive strength is the ability to quickly initiate movement and continue for a period of time.

    power is the ability to display force quickly and is a product of force and velocity. (power = force x velocity)

    velocity is the actual speed of the movement

    Force = mass x acceleration

    That is limit strength. There are various forms of strength such as, strength speed, speed strength, starting strength, explosive strength, relative strength and reactive strength

    Speed-strength = quickly moving minimal to no external load and is directly related to how neurological efficient you can excite fast twitch, high threshold motor units to perform an explosive movement. It is a combination of starting strength and explosive strength

    Hell yeah thanks for the list KingK! Gonna study up on those badasses! Ive been following Christian Thibaudeua for awhile but not consistently, I started with Dave Tate/Joe Defranco but stopped digesting up their knowledge a while ago for some reason.

    And with low reps and injuries, sorry I wasn't that specific my fault, its just typically when someone uses 3-5 reps their form is usually not what it should be for their body structure, obviously a experienced trainee like Dave Tate would have his form specific and precise to his body structure. I would just hate to see a youngster rely on 3-5 reps on his heaviest sets when he's purely training for his ego, obviously he would have form issues. And that person falls in the range of....95 percent of people you see in the gym....common you know it, we all know, most kids/athletes in the gym are just training to fulfill their ego. Its that 5 percent that know what they are doing and make a success out of it in life, like a John Cena for example.

    And I know what anabolics do, I just didn't want this thread to be a debate on why pro bodybuilders use 10-15 reps and then saying its because they use drugs being the number 1 reason.

    I know what you meant when you said low reps and injury. Often when performing low reps, the person begins to lose their form. This is why you should start with light weight and let your CNS/PNS program the appropriate motor pattern.

    Big fan of Yates, who went along with the teachings of Mentzer but added his own flavor! Dorians recipe for mass and power is unmatched if you ask me...
