Slowing down a movement and adding a pause creates tension in your muscles for a longer period of time. Incorporating tempo work into your training will:
💥Enhance muscular control
💥Allow you to get the most out of every lift. This is particularly important when you have minimal equipment at home and don’t have a large selection of weights! 💥Allows you to correct your lifting posture, which inevitably will prevent injuries.
Using this method will help you get past that plateau in your lifts or allow you to get the most out of your training with minimal equipment!
Next time your squatting try a 3 second lower (eccentric phase), a two second pause in the bottom position (staying active) and then explode out of the squat.
