Exercise Tip #1:

Move Slow

Notes/Take Aways:

  • 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. 

    • How did the level of difficulty of the exercise change? 

    • Where you able to feel any new muscles coming online or being recruited?
