Advanced Pure Negative Training

This method of training is very good for increasing your strength and building muscle size. You want to load the weight stack or bar with 40% more weight than you normally use in an exercise when performed conventionally. 
Say you train in the bench press with 200 lbs. for 10 reps. You would load the bar with a total of 280 lbs. Your training partner(s) lift the weight to the top position of the bench by themselves then carefully transfer all of the resistance to you. You lower the weight using a cadence of 6-8 seconds,then your partner(s) lift the weight to the top again. Repeat until you are unable to control the lowering of the weight in a safe manner.  You should be able to do a total of 6-8 reps per set in this manner. Remember, this is a very intense method of training and should be used only once every 8 weeks per body part.  You can do pure negative sets in conjunction with other HIT techniques if you wish or train a body part exclusively with negatives during a training session. Do no more than a total of two sets per body part.
