The Three Benefits of Slower Resistance Training
Slow lifting reduces the forces that commonly cause injury to your joints, muscles and connective tissue.
Slow lifting reduces momentum, which requires the muscle to do most of the work. As a result, muscle failure is reached in a minimum amount of time thereby giving you a more efficient workout. When you can no longer move the weight, the stimulus for muscle growth has begun.
Armed with the knowledge that you can train without injury, you will have the confidence to push your muscles to the required level of fatigue, making your workout more effective.
I really don’t enjoy exercising but I love the benefits of feeling fit, being strong and having energy. I’ve got all three in abundance thanks to InForm Fitness, where I’ve been exercising for only 20 minutes a week for the last year and a half. It’s not magic—it’s hard, controlled work—but for only 20 minutes a week! Amazing but true. - LIDA ORZECK, OWNER, HANKY PANKY
