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.
I know bob prefers TUT with is a type of training involving slow reps.
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.
I do 10 seconds up and down.

Similar to my leg workout, I see... I do 25 seconds down, 20 seconds up for 5 sets of 20 using 500 lbs. on squat...Originally Posted by CROWLER
Is that even possible, is it hard to count when your straning and you would have to take a few breathes inbetween. Educate me?Originally Posted by Magickk
ummm...I think he was joking. Either that or he has tree trunks for legs and then some.Originally Posted by b_delgros
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.Originally Posted by b_delgros

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