i have seen lifters who are using paused deadlifts (konstantinovs and many others) and lifters who are using touch and go with good form!!(benedict magnusson,jim wendler, ronnie coleman) for repetitions.

what do you think , are both ways good to push the 1 rm ? or is one of these better ?

touch and go = constant tension on the lifting muscles which is very good to build muscles .

paused = same lifting like in a competition , so the start is trained very good .

i use repetitions with 531 and lift RAW .

Both are good and lend variety to your training cycle. IMHO

I read a thread here that discussed this. I think the synopsis was that your deadlift style is all up to your comfort.

If you're weak off the floor, then stop on every rep. If you're weak at lockout, then it's OK to bounce.

As with anything else, it boils down to what your weaknesses are.

I agree.

I am weak towards lockout but I just can't seem to get the hang of touch and go deads. I feel like it fucks with my form(once the weight gets moderately heavy), so I just reset each rep

I agree with Mr. Marcus. For years I would stop dead on the floor before pulling. I was strong off the floor and my lockout sucked. The last year+ I have been doing lots of tap and go reps and my lockout has improved.

On a personal opinion, I don't like touch & go. Paused is the way I train.
