  • So how slow on the negative?

    B) Every exercise is done with a controlled but explosive positive and a true 6-8 second negative phase.

    Now that is taken from an older article by DC.. the newer one ( posted on the sticky here ) doest say 6-8 sec ...

    is that a typo ? 6-8sec?

    nm , i found my answer

    "It doesnt matter if its 3 seconds lowered or 6 seconds lowered or whatever--just get to the point where you know you controlled the descent of the weight and at any time you could of stopped and reversed direction if you had to."

      BullFX, On your worksets, the negative will be a controlled negative, no stop watch is needed here, just keep it controlled, if you need a number 2-4 seconds.

      When you finish and fail on your last positive, then you do a very slow controlled negative, like 5-7 seconds, no counting, just controlled and slow...

            If you split the body into 2 parts and choose 3 exercises for each muscle group, whereof 1 is performed each workout, it comes to 6 different routines.

              BullFX, On second thought, I want you to do 30 second negatives on every rep of the workset, ok!, lol.

              I will make your ass grow like you have never seen, lol...
