Hi all, I’ll keep,this brief. I’m 43 year old construction worker that found myself way overweight two years ago. Been busting my ass ever since to change my life. Started with the typical cardio, counting calories, light weight high rep cookie cutter routines. 8 months ago discovered this wonderful 5/3/1 powerlifting thing that has truly changed my life. Decided it was time to sack up and really challenge myself.
So here’s my question. I’m doing the alternating BBB, so for example OHP 531 with BP 5x10 what should the tempo be for the BBB work? I’ve read that with lighter weight the more explosive tempo will help with the higher weight, but slower more controlled creates more time under tension which is more suitable for muscle growth. So should the 5x10 work be more explosive reps or slower more controlled or a happy medium between the two? Thanks in advance for any replies.
