    exactly. very case-by-case on this one - some athletes efficiently apply high tension techniques with zero mention of them. Some have to be totally rewired. This thread points towards the value/necessity of a good coach.

    I needed rewiring! Lots of it. Now I'd say I move pretty good. I don't use nearly as much tension as I used to, but now I don't NEED to. "just enough to enhance to lift" - it just makes so much sense!

    With my experience, if you're going for a PR than maximal tension is probably a must. I have the same thing as Pat, I used to use max tension but now I settle for what I need.

    For those interested, here is the most recent discussion on this exact topic, not even a month ago:
    "Loose" pressing?

    Thanks for the link, and thanks for the post in the previous thread. Looking at the science being cited is important, as most of us overlook it and trust people interpret/use data correctly. Nothing else to say; Brett et. al. have already said it as well as I could (because I usually just quote them or link to an article). Speaking of... anyone remember this? http://www.dragondoor.com/articles/c...t-your-volume/

    Cheers,
    Josh

    Very nice reply, Steve.

    What I find "Interesting" Josef is how you tend to "stir the pot" with most of your postings. I sense a bit of sarcasm. I apologize if I'm wrong.

    There is no sarcasm in Josef's posts. What you see as "stir the pot" is just him looking to question assumptions and long held beliefs in the pursuit of goals. That's what has driven progress in mankind for eons. His posts are nothing if not respectful and thoughtful.

    As for the article, I'll simply say that what comes naturally to some does not to all. We're all different - spend some time raising children, especially genetically related children, and you will see how different we all are very quickly.

    I will say that the high tension techniques advocated by Pavel through the Hardstyle system has benefited me greatly, and I don't think I move in a tense manner the rest of the time, just because I use the techniques while pressing or whatever. I wish I had learned of these techniques 30 years ago, I think my teenage years would have gone much better, but that's life, too. I'm just glad I stumbled across ETK one day at Borders.

    Is the view that Kenneth Jay is expressing a contradiction to hardstyle or it stating the same thing from the opposite side of the coin?
