“It’s easy to think of skill as being the gross movement through space ― swinging a bat, shooting a three-pointer, kicking a soccer ball ― and little more. A skill is just a movement. Once you learn it, you’ve learned it.
Mel Siff noted that motor learning doesn’t quite work that way. Learning isn’t just a matter of picking up a movement one time, in the way you learned to ride a bike as a kid. According to Siff, skill development is an on-going process which “continues as the intensity and complexity of loading increases, as skill under demanding conditions is significantly different from skill under less onerous conditions”….
A squat with 60% is literally a different movement from a squat at 95% of your best lift. Squatting 90 kilos in your first year of training is different from 140 in your second year and still different from 220 after eight years. You can see this for yourself. Load up a bar with 60% and do a few reps with it. Now load the bar up to 95%. The weights feel different, almost like different movements. As far as your brain knows, they are.
Technical mastery, even in “dumb” strength movements, is continual process of learning. Each gain in strength, every extra kilo on your squat, presents a new challenge to your brain. You learn the movement-through-space, and you learn how to handle it with heavy weights.”
