Load vs. Time Under Tension

Much has been made about how quickly (or slowly) one should train. With proponents of slow training claiming its superior due to extra time under tension (TUT) whereas load proponents claim that training slow limits the absolute load you can use and thus limiting your gains. So which is more important?

A new study sheds some light on this question. I break down the study and explain why the two factors aren’t as separate as everyone thinks and how you can apply the results of this study practically to your own training.

"Not only does Layne talk the talk, he's walked the walk. I recommend listening to and reading his resources to any of my friends looking for science-backed fitness information to guide them on their path of knowledge expansion within the realm of fitness. He's one of the few people i've found to be a reliable, educational, no b.s. resource."
