The number of repetitions does not matter in principle

Aug 15th 2013 at 4:28 AM

From the point of view of physiology and stress in the first and in the second case, I did everything right. But if I'm a light weight made the same 15-20 reps, but in the initial slow fashion, the fibers I would not hurt. Do you understand? The number of repetitions - does not matter in principle.

I once gave an example about the reps in squats and leg lifts while standing on. In the first case, the amplitude is much larger and requires more time to complete each repetition. That is why the shin recommends more reps and fewer squats. As long as you do sit-ups 6-8, your friend will make 15-20 Calf. And the time spent will be the same.

The speed of the repetitions - We have a time range (7-30 seconds), to which we should hold our repetition and reach out. This gives rise to two forms of implementation of these iterations:

1. Cruiserweight - fewer reps - slowly

2. Lightweight - more repetitions - fast.

Which option is better? The question is very interesting. A slow form of exercise can ALWAYS take more weight. If you follow the most important principle of growth - the principle of progression through the increased weight load on the projectile, while a slow form for you to seem more natural. Furthermore, in this form we have a long negative phase motion and the shortage of energy in this phase it occurs the most extensive micro-traumas in the muscle fibers.
