Tempo Speed for Control of Movements ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Are you performing your movements at the right controlled tempo 💁🏻♂️ ➖ What is tempo?… ➖ Your tempo is the amount of time it takes on each section of a movement, such as a deadlift – 1 second up and 2-3 seconds down, this is a basic tempo that people usually use. ➖ If you constantly throw your weights up and down or perform a movement to quickly, you’ll have no contraction and most of the time you stop working on your actual motor control, let’s say you are performing a Bodyweight squat and you are rushing the movement and not thinking about where different parts of your body should be and a example would be – knees collapsing in because your not focusing on externally rotating your hips which turns your knees out. ➖ More control of each exercise means faster progress to your goal, take your time with each movement and focus on keeping the technique perfect with each second 💪🏼
