Hi, Question for Chad or anyone else,
The cool tip at the moment is Chad’s tempo prescription of fast concentric and controlled eccentric.
I’d appreciate your thoughts on muscle fibre recruitment when the tempo is, say, 5 seconds up and 5 seconds down. Or even 10 seconds up and 10 seconds down.
What fibres would be recruited in such tempos?
Would such tempos task both slow and fast fibres during the same rep? During the start of the set when you’re fresh, will the muscle fibre recruitment be different than towards the end of the set as you fatigue?
I’m just trying to get a handle on the benefits, or otherwise, of such low tempo speeds.
Any advice or comment would be much appreciated…
