I’d like to ask a question regarding the importance of TUT.
I’ve read contrary views but recently as my interest has shifted to hypertrophy and I have read people such as Nick Mitchell, Christian Thibaudeau and Charles Poliquin amongst others, they all stress it’s importance. I watched a video from Athlean-X that stated that the whole point of 12 reps is to cross a 40 second threshold to stimulate hypertrophy.
The more research based texts (I mean publications for general consumption based on research rather than direct research texts) I’ve read seem to state that sacrificing weight to prolong the rep time is counter productive. I also know that super slow seems to be widely discredited.
So, I guess my question is what is the sweet spot? My sets typically take about 20 to 30 seconds, normally the lower, should I be aiming for lighter wesight and either more or longer reps in order to prioritise hypertrophy.
Apologies for the basic nature of the question.
Thanks in advance.
