What I'm hearing from people is one of two things; Speed work helped because they did a lot more reps, and speed work helped because it improved their form and confidence with a lift. But these aren't the point of speed work as defined by Westside. To me, this shows that increasing volume and reps actually doing the lift are whats important, as opposed to improving speed itself. You can do that by just doing more volume and not worrying about moving explosively.
