#1 Way To Enhance Your Workout
Tempo training is extremely useful for bodyweight exercises due to the absence of weight. By tempo training, you can manipulate your body weight with the use of gravity and time under tension.
When it comes to muscle growth and fat loss, time under tension is the most important thing - not a certain number of repetitions. Furthermore, when you train slower, you target muscles more due to the slow and controlled movement.
Here are some examples:
Option A: Lower down slowly for 3 seconds and push up as fast as possible. Repeat for 60 seconds
Option B: Lower down slowly for 2 seconds and push up for 2 seconds. Repeat for 60 seconds
Option C: Lower down slowly for 5 seconds and push up for 1 seconds. Repeat for 60 seconds
Option D: Lower down slowly for 3 seconds and push up for 3 seconds. Repeat for 60 seconds
BONUS MOVE: Add a 1 second pause at the bottom of each exercise, this will really build the muscle!
To prevent stiffness and injury, make sure you add tempo training to your list of workouts, especially if you have hit a plateau and your weight loss has come to a halt! Tempo training can help build more lean muscle versus traditional training and will deliver lasting results.
