    Disagree with what?

    Athletics and powerlifting are nothing alike. I do agree that you can use the Westside template with athletes. It's basically what we do at UAlbany. We don't use singles...

    There is no need to train a college athlete for a 1RM or use ME training. There are a bunch of reasons. Not scientific, but common sense. You have to remember that athletes are not weight lifters....

    True, but it is absolutely fiber type. This is something we deal with on a daily basis. You can't argue that, in general, men have more fast twitch fibers than women. This leads to significant...

    I do agree you can do a 3rm (or whatever) and make it a maximal effort. But by definition, a max effort lift is a single. Max Effort is a lift above 90%.

    By definition, any sets more than 1 rep are not Maximal Effort. Rep sets are very taxing and absolutely help 1rm strength. This is something you can experiment with to see if you like it.

    I guess here in college athletics we just train our kids and don't worry about acronyms.

    I'm very well aware that one needs to train in a way that is optimal for their goal. That's Day 1 stuff.

    Absolutely. I thinkthe Paused rep is a great raw builder (Squat and Bench). I hate them so much I'll keep doing them.
