Exercise Tip #1:
Think about NOT what you can do to the weights... it's what a machine or weight can properly do to you. That means if done probably, one set, done properly can be an adequate stimulus for a particular muscle group.
Resisting a weight slowly decreases momentum, which improves muscle fiber recruit
Going slow also is a lot safer... many injuries occur from throwing weights around with bad form
Next time you're at the gym, try slowing down your rep speed. Anywhere from a 5/5 to 10/10 cadence speed should be enough to notice a difference.
