Rep Speed

  1. Rep Speed


    I prefer using slower reps like 3 seconds up and 3 seconds down I feel I can control the weight better and avoid injury. Plus I read that fast reps just produce pumps and doesnt work the muscle as effective. Anyone got some knowledge for me.


  2. I know bob prefers TUT with is a type of training involving slow reps.

  3. I can attest that going slower definetly reduces your chances of injury. I used to have frequent shoulder problems on flat bench but once I began doing slow up/down tempos I haven't had a single problem.

    Is that even possible, is it hard to count when your straning and you would have to take a few breathes inbetween. Educate me?

    he was joking.....that would be like 15 minutes PER set!! so just a squat workout would be frickin an hour and 15 minutes not including breaks in between sets. lol.

  10. Yeah, my workout takes about 8 hours a day...

    Dude you could inject me with a gram of test prop ED for a week and I wouldn't be able to squat 500 lbs. for one rep IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM It was just fine sarcasm and goofiness man...

  12. We in the bodybuilding world don't take or understand sarcasm. It's not welcomed here... now let me get back to my 8 hour workout...

  13. Yeah, see, I'm on a wireless laptop that I hold and check the forums while i'm squatting. It's really efficient that way and I get an extra pump while holding the laptop and doing each rep.

  14. You get a good TUT forearm work that way, too, I'll bet!
