In this Video I will explain 2 of the most basic concepts of Building Muscle which is commonly ignored in all the bodybuilding workouts. One is Time Under Tension and the other is the Tempo. Many of the gym athletes often ignore these concepts which hinders their muscle building and fat loss process. I will tell you exacly how much time should you take to complete one set. Performing 3 sets of 12 reps for the exercises your workout is likely killing your gains. Now, don’t get me wrong…I actually like the 10-12 rep range when it comes to building muscle and when the goal is muscle hypertrophy. The problem is, the focus is misdirected as it often times gets put on the number of reps and not the quality of the reps or the time it takes you to perform them. Let me explain.
The genesis of the whole 10-12 rep recommendation for muscle growth actually came from the time under tension that that number of reps would equate to if you performed them with the right tempo. If you did an explosive one second up on the concentric portion of the lift and a slow eccentric lowering of 3 seconds on the way down (another way to increase the tension on the working muscle) then you would be at 4 seconds per rep which would equate to 40-48 seconds of tension in that set.
