Yeah there’s endless literature from the 60s Soviets onward about the need to train muscle groups to fire explosively through coordinate explosive training. This isn’t some CrossFit box fad movement. The strength community is extraordinarily online and collaborative. If any athlete ever was injured doing these or another exercise, maybe they’d be reconsidered, but how often do you ever hear about a D1 or pro athlete having a weight room injury? Everyone involved knows what they’re doing. Even more so than us here.
