    That was a study about strength, not hypertrophy. However, in general, I agree that you should probably lift as fast as possible for concentrics and use a controlled or slower motion for eccentrics for maximum hypertrophy. Unfortunately, this study does not address that.

    You should always lift a weight as fast as you can with good, safe form.

    IIRC, Bryan recommends a reduced speed during the 15s to increase//bring back up total work (ala TUT) due to the lighter load.

    Honestly, what you do in the 15s won't matter so much compared to heavier rep ranges.
