Re:Inducing Hypertrophy..Fast or slow reps?
Eccentric 2-3 secs, concentric 1 sec...... so a combination of slowish and controlled and explosive. You're always stronger on the negative so why not train it and make the most of a workout recruiting more fibres with a good controlled negative.
Recruiting fast twitch fibres is the key to hypertrophy as these are the ones that will increase in size more quickly compared to a slow twitch, or fast oxidative glycolytic fibre.. Theres loads of arguments and training styles out there and different ones work for each person, so try a few different styles and see what works for you.
