My training is based on Mike Tuchscherer's RTS. I know he feels that speed work isn't particularly useful for powerlifters, that it is only useful as a short term method for someone who is specifically deficient in that area and that it should ideally be done at 75-80%.
Just in the last few weeks I went from 50-60% and am now doing around 70% and I love it.
