  • Overly Controlling the Negative?

    I was wondering if one was to be overly strict when controlling the negative phase on any given exercise if it would affect strength gains/progress. I ask because I had someone time me during my shoulder stretch last night and 60secs was up well before I would have counted it to be. That got me thinking that I might be doing longer negatives on my exercises than I thought, and that it possibly could be hurting my progress due to overly taxing my muscles?

        If you put too mush emphasis on negatives on every rep of the workset you will be more taxed and it will cut into your recouperation even more, so just be controlled is just fine and after a while it will come naturally to you and you will not even think of it in seconds just controlled and steady.

        Hope that helped...

          Thanks IH, your response did help - I kind of figured that but I was interested in what others had to say on the subject. I'll be kind and attach a picture friendly to your diet, go nuts
