Yes. I think the principles are the same for building muscle and getting stronger, gear or not. Maybe the % need to be adjusted some since you're not handling extreme weights but you still need to work both muscle types to get the maximum benefit of your training. So benching twice a week is needed raw or geared. DE(speed) & ME(heavy) days. Just make sure you still take a day or week off for deload when needed.
