In the previous article I talked about slow resistance training being safer on joints and connective tissues.
Which is true and great for fitness longevity.
But the advantages don’t end there.
Slow resistance training also allows you to develop better feel for a movement, maintain better biomechanics and really focus your mind on the muscles being worked. All this translates into a more effective exercise!
Better technique, mindful exercise, constant tension and built-in protection against large fluctuations force makes slowing down one of the most impactful changes I’ve made in twenty years of resistance training.
It does take discipline. It is hard work. You will probably have to start with lighter resistances.
But it’s definitely worth it.
