Negatives and the deadlift

While doing deadlifts using a straight bar, should the negative be emphasized?
I suppose what I am asking is the rep cadence the same as other exercises 2-2-4?
Thanks
Andy

I just read in "muscles in minutes" and Mike says to lower it under control. That′s how I′ve always done them as I would never drop the weight. I was just wondering if maybe accentuating the negative would be ok, or too depletive or whatever.
Dropping the weight as I′ve seen guys do seems like such a waste, as that is 2/3 of muscle building effort gone to waste

I′d say lower under strict control, and never drop the weight.

Also, when doing dips, when you can′t get another full-range positive rep, lower under control for another negative rep. Some people stop after their last full-range postive rep, but I always do at least one more -- partial -- postive rep, followed by a very slow negative rep, and then stop.

Same goes for standing calf raises.

Heck, I even did one more negative rep when I did my squats in a power rack: after I couldn′t get another full-range postive rep, I lowered the bar slowly until it rested on the rack pins, and then crawled away from under the bar.
