Workout of the Week 05-20-19 Negatives Week 3: Back & Biceps

ย 

During May we want to focus on introducing a technique you can add to your current workout regimen that will increase the intensity of your training sessions... Negatives. ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ
-
Adding negative sets to your exercises not only increases the workload on your muscles but it also helps you control the tempo, promotes strength, muscle recruitment and supports a stronger mind-muscle connection during your workouts.ย 
-
Negative reps can be tagged onto your exercises at the end by either increasing the weight or staying the same but dramatically slowing down your ECCENTRIC or lowering phase of that exercise.ย 
-
Complete 3-5reps at a 3-5second pace as you lower the weight.ย 
-
These can tax your muscles pretty heavily so we recommend having a spotter if your performing compound exercises or utilize machines when performing your negatives! ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ
