What brings the most improvement?

I read an article in T-Nation last year that really stuck with me.

During yesterday’s Deadlifts for Disaster Relief  event, one of our lifters had gone from a former PR of 235lb  a few months ago to a new PR of 355lb.

That is a big jump! He was pretty strong already when he came to the Cave and  needed to focus on improving his technique.  His technique improved and he could handle more and more weight.

While it is common knowledge among coaches that untrained,  new people improve very fast in the beginning; his progress was still notable.

Some would ask if he got stronger or just got  better technique.

I would say both.  He is a very dedicated, disciplined guy who will go far in his training.

I have the link to the  T-Nation article here if you want to dig deeper into this.

Let me know how you see it, okay?
