My better judgement is telling me the eccentric phase of exercise is an important contraction in the prevention of injury.  I have no trouble finding anything related to throwing sports but I cannot find anything as it relates to the Deadlift.  I see lifters emphasize the concentric but just drop the weight with no controlled eccentric movement.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm a CPT operating from a home studio. While in the process of obtaining business insurance, State Farm told me that I would be cancelled EVEN THO I have liability coverage from a separate entity, such as Phila Insurance.
Can anyone point me to a company who would insure both my business AND property?
