HOW TO DO IT:

Oxygen - - SMALL CHANGES BIG RESULTS -

Ex­tend­ing your time un­der ten­sion is one of the best ways to elicit change, and the 1.5-rep tech­nique is an ex­cel­lent TUT for­mula. The idea is to dou­ble the work­load in the bot­tom­most por­tion of a move — the part where strength and force pro­duc­tion are usu­ally at their weak­est — help­ing you de­vel­op­ing strength where you had none be­fore. The mea­sured pace of this tech­nique also elim­i­nates the “re­bound” ef­fect on things like squats and de­scend­ing mo­tions — that bounc­ing at the bot­tom of the move that gen­er­ates mo­men­tum to help you re­turn to the start. This way, your mus­cles are forced to work harder and your joints and con­nec­tive tis­sues are pro­tected, trans­lat­ing into bet­ter re­sults.
