Hey guys strength question here

what would be the difference in someone that is strong in a full Nordic but weak in an MSL Nordic vs someone weak in the full Nordic and strong in the MSL??

Eccentric vs concentric strength… Also, eccentric is pure knee flexion. Starting from bottom position is more so full posterior chain neural drive.

MSL requires enough eccentric knee flexion strength to decelerate the body. It’s not uncommon at all to be great on the way up and not on the way down.
