I read this article in the May 2008 Muscular Development..."3 Seconds Up, 3 Seconds Down: Slower Movement for Greater Growth Hormone and Free Testosterone Responses."
The article discusses how slower movement and shorter rest periods (60 seconds) increase GH and testosterone while providing muscles with greater tension, ultimately resulting in hypertrophy.
I adopted this workout regime over the last 3 weeks and though I've had to lower the weight immensely, I am seeing size gains.
Does anybody else follow these similar guidlines??
