This simply boils down to an explosive, accelerating movement being more effective.
But if we take a closer look at a gymnast specialized in rings, we see massive shoulders and arms. Most of the forces his muscles are subjected to are slow or static movements. Besides explosive movements more controlled slow movements have a place in a BB scheme. These are the excercises that build functional strength and increase muscle tone (in my experience).
What the deuce is "functional" strength? Another over-used misnomer. For a weightlifter functional strength is demonstrated in the two classical lifts. A strongman does a lot more "static" lifts like a farmers walk and keg lift for example but that does not make him "functionally" stronger. Since when did a gymnast become stronger than a weightlifter?
Motor skills do not translate from one to another. Improving your clean will not improve your deadlift. However if you strengthen the muscles required in the deadlift by cleaning, performing good mornings and training your hip and knee extonsors your deadlift will improve,. Keep in mind that you will have to do a little deadlifting to keep your motor skill fresh, but you will get stronger in the deadlift without ever attempting a PR.
Keep running your mouth if you want to get humiliated like cauthon did.
