does the average person looking to get stronger need speed work?
is there a benefit to doing speed work if you are a non competitive lifter and just want to get recreationally stronger and bigger? Does it have a place, or is repetition work better suited to go along with the max effort work?
Do you want to get stronger? If so, a little speed work would only help. Really and truly, speed work could never hurt.....if you get stronger, you are putting more weight on the bar, which equals more tension and work...meaning more potential for growth.

I don't think it is necessary. Just focus on lifting weights.
It also depends on what exercises you want to do speed work in? Speed work on squats or bench press is stupid as shit IMO because you are going to decelerate before you reach the top of the movement any way. Then it is not speed work any more. Unless you have some bands or chains ofcourse and use accomodating resistance. Or you do plyos or olympic lifts. But, I don't think it is necessary for general populations.
