  • very slow reps or moderate pace?

    I am working on some week points, biceps, and wanted to know if using a lighter weight with very slow and clean form would help build strength and muscle?

    Why not take advantage of both? I see this is in the puppy pound, so I am assuming you train DC.

    Why not use BB curls for heavy, moderate speed reps, and incline dbs for slow and controlled, ultra tight form reps? And then a third exercise where you can pick which method you use--either or.

    That way, you can always accurately gauge progress by saying "ok, BB curls are quicker paced, but for heavy weight, and these db's are gonna be super slow with squeezes and pauses in the stretch...reallly focus on the squeeze".

    Just what I do, LOL.

      Lock thanks for the advice. I will try it and focus on the squeeze more.

        Momentum takes tension off the muscles...it does not increase tension. I am not saying every rep must be perfect... But you should always control the wt.

        It also cones down in part to what you think the human body will adapt to...peak tension or total tension?

            Something i did, and this is not DC training, but I can see it working well at least in the short term.

            Do your set with the same reps and rest pause as in Dc training, but lighten the weight by half (most likely). Do the positive part of the rep explosively, but wih good form. Hold the positive for five seconds them lower it in five. One of my favorite ways is to do alternating db's. Doing it this way you are are holding one db in the contracted position while the other arm is lowering. I want to emphasize that this is not a dc principal or dc technique. It is just something that I've used in the past with success

              I agree with Lock, that's how I set up my blasts two. One heavy as shit lift, moderate/explosive, two others that are pretty darn slow.

                Doberman I will give that a try. I am more interested in what will work for me and appreciate all the feedback.
