    Interesting. The heavier warmup approach seems to only work for my bench. DLs I'm good with just a few activation sets to make sure my posterior chain is firing. Squats I need the typical ascending warmup (takes me a while to get into a groove).

    It's obviously a neural thing, which relates speed as you mentioned. Knowing, for a fact, that you can handle a heavier weight across your chest seems to do better things vs knowing you can hold a heavier weight in front of you/on your back. At least for me and a few clients. Still intrigued to see if it translates at all to 1RM attempts in the elite (you, Ecks, etc).
