Everyone has their own routine when it comes to working out, including the number of reps, sets and how quickly you do them. If you are confused in choosing between fast or slow reps, watch the above video to learn about rep speeds and time under tension and find out if it’s worth switching up your speed!
One of the great advantages of fast reps is reaching muscular fatigue, or failure, more quickly, which is one to the key to muscle growth. When doing fast reps, you also lift an amount closer to your max rep weight, which results in higher work volume.
If you are a beginner or working on your form, slow reps are great for you, as slow reps allow you more control over the weights and your body’s movement when lifting.
