..”long sit test”

Ok , so no pain when smashing , when I relax my muscles when I smash on the barbell my feet are more plantar flexed ,

but I use to try to always smash with feet in Doris flexion because I thought it was better to increase dorsi flexion .. But in a dorsi flexed position , the tendon is quite stiff ,

am I meant to wait until the stiff tendon gives slack or just completely relax foot into plantar flexion ?

What’s the difference between smashing a tensed and relaxed muscle? I heard about it having a different affect on the nervous system

Thank you for your help 🙂
