i concur with my esteemed colleague... I have yet to be impressed with any products of deteriorating form for the sake of shaving a few seconds off of a metabolic workout. those with well developed technique (in particular the o-lifts and variations) are able to push the metCon way further than anyone who goes the other route, i.e. push the metCon and then develop the form. Long term repetition of shitty form just further engrains those motor patterns, which then become habits to UNlearn before you can learn the right ones. Seems to me learning them first, and getting them squared away before dropping them into a high-fatigure situation is wise.
