I like this technique as it has the least amount of impact overall and helps to produce a nice even canopy in space restricted areas. I begin with simply tying over the top when a young plant is about 3-4 nodes, thus forcing lateral growth jumps in the side shoots as the plants reorient themselves to the light. As those shoots reach for the light, when they reach a tie-able height, they get it too... continuing to shape and train the plant to grow horizontally instead of vertically. Pots that are wider than they are tall also encourage a more bonsai like plant. I've seen many different ways of training,... tying, using weights, greenwire, etc. I've also drilled 1/8th" holes just below the lip of a pot all the way around it to have tying points all the way around a pot. Typically LST can take a plant further into veg, but the overall even canopy will make for a more abundant harvest.
I'll post a pic of a trained Sweet Blue after the light goes out tonight.
What are some of YOUR personal favorite training techniques?

i just started playing with some training techniques, and i could use some help. basically its trial and error, but im getting a first hand look at how this beautiful plant grows, so its priceless. i use skewers to pin down and train lower growth. check it out: the one in the back i gently tied the maristams together when i was good and medicated... just to see what could happen.
the best thing ive tried so far is something i read called a FIM. here is a look at the result: within 5 inches, the main top splits into 9 teenie tops (maybe even 10!). cant wait to grow it up and watch it bud out!
all of this is learning to me, and im like a little kid with a science kit. any guidance is welcome
I am also using pretty much the same technique. I do all my training under my flourescents and then put them in bud room. it usually takes about 6 weeks to get a plant the way i like it. throw some pix in when i get a minute
