Rest pause style training, as in Dogcrapp stuff?
Prior to your first competition, I would use them as sparingly as you can in training. Just bear in mind 'sparingly' is a term which will mean different things as you get older!
I think if you're looking to lift single ply most of your lifting should be done as fast as possible.
As in the type of stuff Btb and I have been doing?
