I can't wrap my head around what you're suggesting then Ryan, the only videos I've seen where guys are actually rotating out to lockout are done slower with a short pause at the top like I did in the second video. Sure it's safer on the elbows and I can rotate to lockout, but it's also slower and surely that defeats the purpose too? I also can't see how it's going to be productive to rotate your shoulders to lockout each rep on a fast set of 3.

I was under the impression speed work needs to be as ballistic as possible, more closely resembling the first video. Unless the way you do your dynamic work is a slower than what I have in my mind as to what constitutes speed work.
