Thursday Fact Vs. Myth

Lifting slowly makes your muscles work harder and grow faster.

MYTH

Lifting slowly recruits the smaller muscle fibers and leaves the big ones out of the action. If you want to get bigger, you’ve got to lift fast! This doesn’t mean to swing the weights and loose proper form, you need to stay in control and move the weight in correct form. I generally lift deep and fast. I feel like I get the biggest results when I go heavy, fast (with proper form), moderate repetitions, with 30-60 seconds of rest between sets.  GO BIG OR GO HOME! those little muscles on top of the thigh!

Questions:
1. What do you generally try and focus on when you lift?
2. How many sets/reps do you like to do?

My favorite thing to do is to wake up early and start the day off with a good sweat. There's nothing more exciting then trying and new workout. I love to create new workouts to help people get fit. View all posts by fitsgreaterthanskinny
