Be Controlled.


The rate at which you perform your weight lifting has a big impact on your results. While lifting at a quick tempo may make it easier to lift more weight, you are not getting optimal results. Additionally, lifting at a quick rate limits the control you have over the weight which can lead to injury.

Ideally you should lower the weight at approximately half the speed as you raise it. For example, when doing bicep curls, lower the weight towards the floor for a 2 count and raise back towards your shoulders for a 1 count.

Be Healthy. Be Balanced.
