Accentuated Negative Training and Certain Lift Issues
For quite some time i've been meaning to include some very deliberate and slow negatives in my training. Something along the lines of the extreme advocated by DoggCrap. A problem I'm seeing, however, is that accentuated negatives to such a degree seem, while not quite counterproductive, a bit inhibitive for such lifts as the deadlift, where I'm envisioning an 8 second or so negative causing grip and similar supporting links to drop off the table long before the target muscles are sufficiently hit.
Has anyone employed such training while including such lifts? I'd be interested in hearing your experiences if so.

Not for deadlifts... but squats they feel great... but the best muscle group to imply negatives with are shoulders.. nothing like holding a 60-80 lb dumbbell and trying to resist it dropping to the floor..

i've done negative's with dead lifts.
you have to use less weight to keep the form perfect.
burns like a mother f***** after
id just do a straight set of 6-8 reps to failure with a 8-10 second negative.. but the last rep id hold it as long as i could

Well doing certain lifts like the DL for example, its not necessarily an 8 sec negative, its more of just a controlled negative.

I'm very curious as to how you do negatives on deadlifts. Could one of you explain your process? Are we talking deads from the floor or pins in a power rack? I can see negatives used for curls, bench, squats and such but deads doesn't sound like it would be simple to do...........for sure I'd have to drop the poundage for something like this.

Sorry bro! Been buried under a pile of crap a mile high. hahahaha I'm still very interested in that sliding scale thing. You're suggestions for my routine I've been using and seeing pretty good results. BTW, the negative pull-ups have done wonders bro...no kidding! I managed two positive pull-ups after three weeks of negatives! Not to mention I swear I see a lat poking out from under this fat. hahahaha
I'll try and pop on IM asap when I see you on-line.

I do a controlled negative of 6-8 seconds on partial deadlifts...I guess its a combo of Rack dead and romanian dead....Both back and hammies were shot the next day....Grip was definitely a limiting factor but that just because I have bad grip strength from too many workouts using straps....
