3 Keys to Mastering Slow Strength Training
Tension: How long they kept force applied against the muscle. Speed: The cadence at which they raised and lowered the weight.
Failure: Final reps should be a battle. Failure is growth – Muscles shake, don’t break WARM UP: –

Michael Phelps
Squat Seal Claps
Side Straddle Hop
Downward Dog – Cobra
Willie Mays Hays
Cherry Pickers

squeeze more muscle-making out of each rep’s three phases—positive, static, and negative—by doing them in slow motion – each exercise phase will have a cadence

Example – Merkin – Down 1,2,3 – stay in the down position 4,5,6, up slow 7,8,9

Slow motion – understand the necessity of slowing down and not going full speed all the time. Slow can be more productive than unfocused, frantic activity

We grow by failing – lifting weights very slowly to maximize muscle fatigue, the goal being muscle failure. As we quip, ‘Failure is success.’ Muscle failure is the key to stimulating muscle growth

Failing in life is how you learn and grown, without any setbacks, there can be no come back
