    It slows you down and makes you muscle bound.

    Personally I don't rate it for transfer to athletic performance... for powerlifters it's great but most sporting movements have the shank moving forward during movements. So I believe that a more 'weightlifting' style should be used, it has a greater correlation with jumping performance and having a more upright trunk would be closer to the position in a boxing stance. I'm of the school of thought that a squat should primarily be a leg/quad exercise, not a hip/lower back exercise.

    No athlete should ever be doing bodybuilder style training. Hypertrophy in itself isn't bad (depending on how tight you are at a weight) but the type of hypertrophy and how it was achieved is very important. The typical high volume-low intensity training performed by a bodybuilder is every bit as detrimental to athletic performance as a typical boxing trainer believes about weightlifting in general.

    The more anaerobic your training = the higher your basal levels of testosterone. Aerobic training and overtraining of any sort has the opposite effect. There is a correlation between fast twitch fibres and testosterone levels.

    Fitter in what way? Fitness is very specific to the mode of training.
     
  15. DW, what do you think about power cleans for athletes? (sorry this is a bit vague but I've heard alot of different athletes from different sports do them)
