Thanks OR, here is another one.

Another one from LRB

A few weeks ago I did Ironradio and Phil talked about the fact that when he just missed his 804 pull, the heaviest pull he used in that whole training cycle was 625. One of the concepts discussed was that if you could go from pulling 545 for a hard 5 sets of 3 in 25 minutes, to pulling 545 for 5 sets of 3 in 15 minutes, with every rep fast and explosive, did you get stronger?

Well, hell yes you did. You did so through progression. Yes, progression. Doing the same amount of work in less time, is still progression. Progression isn't just weight on the bar, or rep PR's. It can also be doing that 545 for 5x3 in 15 minutes with ease, rather than 25 minutes of Rikers Island shower style brutality.

The more work you can get done in the gym, in an appropriate time, the stronger you will get. This is not an area most guys ever venture into because they believe more weight on the bar, is the ONLY way. Eventually yes, the bar has to get loaded, however as I've documented from lots of strong guys, you want to hold off on these times as much as possible, and venture into that area as little as possible.
