    But the questions are..........How much do you grunt, and how loud? THAT is the difference maker if you are just grunting because it is the natural thing to do when lifting anything heavy and in repetition. Or if you are a musclehead luggage-carrier.

    low key grunt, more like a quiet tazmanian devil when i go heavy (i weigh about 165 and last time i trained legs managed 450lb for 6 reps knees to chest)

    I like to keep my workouts focussed. I can be in and out in just over an hour-(20 mins cardio then destroy one bodypart. Dont care if its right, its just how I like to train)

    sounds like you're guilty of doing leg press

    Another question:

    Will some intrepid soul explain, to this poor benighted kinesiology grad, how exactly it is that engaging the vocal cords (or even engaging in loud glottal-stops) helps to optimize muscular contraction in weight-bearing exercise? What is the precise biomechanical correlation?

    EDIT: My style field may say "Karate", but I don't buy any crap about kiais adding anything to fighting ability either, so let's not waste time going there, thnx.

    Something to do with tightening the abdomen muscles when you expel air? Tennis players do it as well and my definitely-non-kiaing MT instructor has me breathe out when I strike...

    Breathing out at the right time, I understand. It was the vocal-cord or glottal-stop bit I was asking about. I was also asking because there are a number of people, from tennis players to boxers (and lifters), who seem to be content with a well-placed--but grunt-free--exhalation. So why the noise?
