There have been some proponents against eccentric training lately like Thibaudeau. He's saying that even though you're stronger during eccentric, the soreness is undesirable and we might be better off prioritizing concentric things since it allows more work to be done with less soreness and that perhaps the work rather than the muscle damage is a more important factor in hypertrophy.

I don't know since I can't understand the science about this. Certainly correlated but not sure the causal effects, or how hypertrophy and overcompensation actually occur.
