I′m just about to start another 4-6 weeks of Negative Only training and was thinking about the rep speed.
I had some good results recently using a NO rep speed of 6-8 seconds depending on the ROM of the exercise. But going through some articles of Arthur′s from the 70′s he says to just lower under control in about 4 seconds (I think this would probably allow more weight to be used) and suggested no more than 8 reps .
I have also read that taking too long on the negative can give the muscles a bit of a “rest”.
Has anybody compared slower negatives to faster ones? Any comments would be appreciated.
B-WINE you seem pretty cluey with AJ′s methods, any ideas?
