THIS.

I've spent half a work out practicing a skill with no weight or with PVC for a movement that will take place in the future. I haven't even done a full clean yet (hang cleans only) and probably won't until my mechanics are solid. It's hard to "tear" muscles and connective tissues when your mechanics are solid. Sore does not equal damage.
